Mailx + IMAP?!

While this may not come as a surprise for some of you who are well versed in the command line world, but I was just recently informed that the mailx mail program, which is often the default program linked to mail(1) in many Linux systems, including my personal favorite, Slackware, actually supports IMAP! Not only does it support IMAP, but for my uses, it supports it rather well. Amazingly enough, it also supports a host of other interesting things, and this means that I am now happily enjoying using mailx as my main mail client. This probably will not last long, as I rarely stick for too long to a single mail program, but for the moment, it's really neat to be able to add this little program, elegant in its simplicity, to my ring of mail clients to use and rotate.
