[VM] VM is awesome (was vm-save-buffer) (Hugo Geir)

User-agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.10; rv:42.0) Gecko/20100101 Thunderbird/42.0

I used to use VM and really liked it (even submitted some patches back
in the day).

I had to switch to Thunderbird because I am a heavy IMAP user.  I use
IMAP so that I can read my email, including old filed emails, on
multiple devices.

I moved to Thunderbird when VM's IMAP interface was very limited.

I'd like to come back to VM, but have felt like I could not because
AFAICT it doesn't support my current mode of operation, which involves
simultaneously keeping open two IMAP inboxes for two different accounts.

When I tried to use VM again, it seemed like I couldn't effectively keep
two IMAP servers open simultaneously, so I gave up.  Was I wrong about
that, or is it feasible?  I'd love to come back to the fold, if possible.

By the way, for readers trying alternatives, I should mention that I
experimented with mutt, but gave up on that, as well.  Moving between
folders and servers in mutt is *EXTREMELY* clunky.  Also, interacting
with large numbers of folders seemed very bad: (1) it involved a lot of
hacking of configuration files (2) the interactions to switch folders
were very clunky and (3) mutt didn't seem to be able to handle
displaying a large number of folders and letting you jump to them
