I believe mutt.exe is part of the cygwin build.

| VM

| 1) *Much* easier to configure and get running.

| 3) UI is more like other mail readers.
| 4) Flexible support for "leave on server" functionality.
| gnus
| ----
| 1) Integrate e-mail with news.
| 2) More customizable, and with more packages available to do TO-DO lists,
| 3) Allows a message-per-file storage format. (This is important ... I've
| had VM folders so large I can't open them on a 256Mb PC.)
| 4) Easily browse mail groups, and create new ones as needed.
| That said, I have to say that I keep coming back to Eudora.  It's very
| fast, and rediculously easy to configure, complete with filters, automatic
| stationery, multiple personalities.  The biggest drawbacks are that it
| requires too much mousing, and that it doesn't support a message-per-file
| format.  I'm going to look into mutt once I can locate a Windows version.
