in reply to How I usually read my mail:

I picked 'Opera mail' but really I needed to pick 'Pine' too, since it all depends on where I happen to be.. Pine remotely (via ssh), Opera locally (usually).

    I used to use pine several years ago, but use a web interface now. Your mention of pine was a bit nostalgic - I don't use it too much any more.
      Oh, I much prefer pine. I've been using it for ... oh, I guess it was 10 years in August! Web mail can be nifty, but private webmail servers are usually too poky for my tastes, and public webservers are too unreliable (just tried logging in to my gmail account ... service down!) They can take my pine. They'll just have to pry it from my cold, dead fingers. ;->
        I agree -- in fact, my webmail client is down late at night every few week nights, so I still use pine (via ssh) from time to time when I must and should be in bed.
