Searching TXT Emailprog

I am looking for an Email programm
for Fedora Linux.
I am beginner.
The programm should handle txt or tex files and only txt files
not html files.

Why?
Why want to save the inbox easy in ascii files.
Thunderbird cannot do it and until today I do copy and paste with every email.

There are many emailprogs like Kmail oder Sylpheed or Postler or Claes.

I want to send txt Files and receice txt mails without pictores and without html.


Thank You for help.

Have you looked at Mutt?

Code:
yum info mutt
Loaded plugins: langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit
Available Packages
Name        : mutt
[ ... ]
Summary     : A text mode mail user agent
URL         : http://www.mutt.org/
License     : GPLv2+ and Public Domain
Description : Mutt is a small but very powerful text-based MIME mail client.  Mutt
            : is highly configurable, and is well suited to the mail power user with
            : advanced features like key bindings, keyboard macros, mail threading,
            : regular expression searches and a powerful pattern matching language
            : for selecting groups of messages.
Does this fit your needs?

Mutt's great. Rupert will probably chime with alpine (which I haven't used in years, so can't speak for or against it). At any rate, I have a beginner's page on mutt at http://home.roadrunner.com/~computertaijutsu/mutt.html

Re: Searching TXT Emailprog

In a nearly ridiculous chain of events, now even alpine is a dead project and has been resurrected (from June 2009) as "re-alpine":

http://re-alpine.sourceforge.net/

hence ..... pine -> alpine -> re-alpine

Re: Searching TXT Emailprog

Thunderbird does save text files as text which is accessible by text editor but they are in directories under the .thunderbird directory, but such access is not the way thunderbird is designed to to be used. Those text files are useful though for searching using the search functions of an editor such as vim rather than Thunderbird's search function. For a text mailer mutt is popular in my neck of the woods. It's predecessor, elm, looks like it's well out of date, but on one site I visited recently it does claim to have a maintainer. Ben.

Re: Searching TXT Emailprog

Good afternoon. Thank You for Your friendly help. I was looking at
pine
alpine
mutt
and I am sure
2013 I shall user mutt or alpine.

But now I am a little bit afraid.
Which of the 3 or more terminal-based Email progs is moost easy for beginners?
pine
alpine
mutt

I like to say:
emailprog filename.txt emailad. smtp.provider.net password

This is more easy than Thunderbird
when I can understand the system.

Re: Searching TXT Emailprog

I would suggest trying any tutorial on any of them, and seeing which looks easier. (Or even setting one up, possibly in a virtual machine.) I remember finding mutt difficult when I started it--now, it doesn't seem that way to me, but that may be because I've been using it for so many years.

You can save some time and forget reviewing 'pine', it's the older version of 'alpine'. Just review alpine and mutt

Re: Searching TXT Emailprog

Have you tried the ImportExportTools plugin for Thunderbird?

A snippet from the plugin page:

Quote:
This extension allows the user to export and import folders and messages with lots of options, for example:
Tools Menu --> ImportExportTools or Context menu on folders panel --> Import/Export
- export of folder in a single file (mbox format), with also the subfolders if you want;
- export of all messages in single files (eml or html or plain text format or CSV), with an index;
- export of all messages in one single plain text file;
- export of index of the messages in a folder (HTML or CSV format);
- mbox files import;
- eml files import;
- emlx files import;
- import of all the eml files existing in a directory;
- export of all files of all mail files of the profile (just from the "Tools" menu);
- search with various criteria and export messages;
- import SMS from the programs "SMS Backup and Restore" for Android and Nokia2AndroidSMS;

File menu --> Save selected messages or Context menu of thread panel --> Save selected messages
- saving multiple messages in eml/html/plain text format with just a click;

Message menu --> Copy to clipboard or Context menu of thread panel --> Copy to clipboard
- copy the message or all headers to clipboard.

Context menu on an EML attachment
- import file in the folder
Might be worth trying out.
