Yeah. I need to start using mutt again. Then, at least, I'd be able to 
SSH home and check my mail while I'm at school.

Right now I'm being spoiled with pretty pictures by Thunderbird. I like 
how the spam filtering works :)

The only problem I can see with the mutt solution is that line wrapping 
is an editor setting, not a mutt setting.

What you'd need to find is a way to tell vim whether or not to line wrap 
as a commandline option (I believe there's an option for specifying 
arbitrary config options as command arguments, but I don't remember what 
it is). From there, set up send-hooks so that your editor for mails to 
linus is something like 'vim (don't wrap)' and then the default editor 
for everybody else is 'vim (normal)'.
