Just a completely different suggestion. Why not use Mutt and let it
run in an Emacs ansi-term? I do it that way since yesterday, and it
works splendit.

Amy, from this list, helped me to write a function (to be exact, she
wrote the function all alone) that calls the ansi-term, starts Mutt,
or changes to this buffer if it's already running. I mapped it to F9,
and Mutt is ready whenever I hit that key.

A true rival for Gnus, VM and MEW.
