I second the above. 

There is another issue. Mutt is hugely capable but complicated, and
imho not user friendly. All the help is in a huge tome of a manual,
and you can lose days  trying to soak in some sense. If I had to do
that learning, I'd rather learn Polish, Russian, or Romanian. We (The
JWs) have a need for bilingual qualified people here. Is there some
law against things being user-friendly?

     All the Best
