I used to feel the same, but KMail/Aegypten/KDE3.1 have defeated me on
Debian testing so far - hence I'm using a combination of inline sigs via
KMail or PGP/MIME in Mutt. KMail was just waiting too long for pipes and
filters so I moved the task to a separate mail server. Now it's just as
quick to use either KMail or Mutt.

One thing I like about Mutt is that it uses Vi as the composer (you can
select others), which gives me a full screen composing window without
the extraneous GUI stuff.

Whilst KMail remains broken, I need the plugin to validate PGP/MIME but
need to switch to inline for each email to send because gpg-agent won't

Ho hum, KDE3.2 will be on Debian soon.
