Hi Tim,
Thanks for your long reply about the switch to mu4e, which sounded
familiar to me, but only after I spent some time looking did I realize
it's an emacs frontend to the 'mu' project.  Which I recall looking at
but decided it wasn't what I wanted.

I guess my desires  are:

1. IMAP support that works well.  VM is pretty close here, but slow at
   times.  Need this for multiple device support.  

   mu/mu4e and other non-IMAP based tools just don't fit into my needs
   which is seemless access to all/most of my email from both VM and
   other clients.  

2. emacs editing/searching/composing for basic key bindings.  Again VM
   works well here.  I do have thoughts on more M* bindings for more
   grouping options, such as by sender:, list-id:, etc.  It would be
   nice to be able to mark by arbitrary headers more easily. 

3. HTML -> Text support.  I read VM exclusively inside SSH/putty
   sessions.  I never use emacs in GUI mode with inline graphics.
   Maybe time to do so?

   a. An easy way to find and copy URLs so I can copy them to use in
      my local web browser would be nice.  I just found out about the
      [ and ] keys in w3m mode, which I currently use, even though it
      annoyingly over-rides the 't' mode to toggel showing the full

   b. A bunch of times I'll save an email and pull out my phone just
      to look at the images or to find and click on that damn
      un-subscribe link button hidden deep in the HTML stream.  LOL.

But don't get me wrong, I find VM makes my life so much easier (even
though my friends whine about how funky my supercite'd emacs look on
their phones when they read email....

Its be best too I've found so far, I just wish we could do more.
