Alpine Mail Client

During the Summer 2008 semester I was intruced to an email client at UNC called Pine, a very simple, shell email client. In playing with Ubuntu I have found its modern counterpart, Alpine. It is a really simple email client that runs in the Linux/Unix shell. My only problem with it is that it is not multi-account friendly, since it only ackowledges one root INBOX. I really should not find this text based utility easier to use than something like Thunderbird, but for me it is.
