I am looking for an email client in the form of a terminal/console application. Does such an app exist on Ubuntu 14.04? I've yet to find one.


Mutt is a fairly popular text-based CLI email client that you can run in Ubunutu (and other distros). Get it with

sudo apt-get install mutt

Yes, there is also alpine.

sudo apt-get install alpine
