A text-based, but menu-driven and thus easy-to-use e-mail program. It
is very customizable from easy(default) to very powerful(for
powerusers) thru it's internal config menu.
It has many features, e.g. from Color support, threading and an
integrated help system.
Pine is a very popular, easy to use, full-featured email user agent
which includes a simple text editor called pico. Pine supports MIME
extensions and can also be used to read news.  Pine also supports
IMAP, mail, MH and Maildir (used by qmail) style folders.
Pine should be installed to make possible managing mail in a text terminal;
its interface is rather handy in that sense that it allows you to start
using the program without reading any additional documenation. It is a very
commonly used email user agent and it is currently in development.
Be careful when using pine with Maildir folders: the Maildir support
is brought into pine by a non-native code and might not work as stable
as other functions.
