3/10    What email program do people in Cal CS use nowadays?  In my school days
        people used /usr/bin/mail, then RMail in emacs, then VMail in emacs.
        After my days people used Elm, Pine, Mutt (I forgot which order).  In
        my first two jobs we could tell the seniority of fellow engineers based
        on which email program they use at work, because everyone used what
        they used to use in their school years.  In my last two jobs though,
        everyone was forced to use Outlook.
        \_ isn't it all about Gmail and other web based mail apps now?
           \_ I only use mail/mutt/elm these days to test outgoing mail
              and view headers for production machines, kind of sad.
        \_ The vast majority of students use web interfaces to email almost
           exclusively.  -tom
           \_ This. Most everyone uses gmail or squirrelmail, then some use
              (that piece of shit) Thunderbird or Outlook.
              \_ Then does the CS Dept. still give out class accounts on UNIX
                 machines?  -- OP
                 \_ Yes they do. And for email inst advises mutt or pine.
        \_ I use mutt to read gmail.
        \_ I still use VM, but it doesn't work so well with newer emacsen.
