emacs email

it's a pain.. but let's stick with the way VM wants to handle it. the
idea is that vm is a mode for mbox files: you can basicly open an mbox
file and navigate it, reply to messages etc... that's a nice paradigm.

the problem is: i'm using Maildir. actually, thinking about it more,
this is not a real problem. the real problem is that in order to solve
locking issues, VM uses movemail to move email from a standard
multi-access point (i.e. a Maildir inbox) to a locally managed
single-access mbox file. Fine with me, but it's a leaky abstraction..

i'm trying

    apt-get install mailutils
