try mutt together with 'vim'. 'vim' is smart enough to do the quoting
mostly right, and mutt is generally a decent MUA, imho, although also
lacking in some areas ("sucks less").

You all sound as if there should be an IMAP client library that does
IMAP right, and that all MUAs can make use of. Maybe someone can
intrigue some of the projects out there to collaborate.

Kind regards,
