Thunderbird with enigmail.

Also, protonmail, but that's done via browser.

Ant P. ... you want 'set pager_stop'

~/.muttrc:
### pager_stop
### Type: boolean
### Default: unset
### When set, the internal-pager will not move to the next message when you
### are at the end of a message and invoke the next-page function.
set pager_stop

Not quite sure of the issue but if you set 'mailboxes' then 'c' (change-folder) and '?' will provide a menu to select 'mailboxes'. You might also want a 'folder-hook' and 'set folder=' and so adjust '+' (that's the 'root' of the 'mailbox'). For multiple mailboxes/accounts then I'd suggest you configure 'folder-hook' and 'send-hook' that switches the root on entering the mailbox, eg:

~/.muttrc:
set spoolfile=+foo/INBOX
set hostname="foo.org"
mailboxes = +foo/INBOX +ba/INBOX

send-hook "(~t @)" 'set record="+Sent"'
send-hook "(~f @foo.org)" 'my_hdr From: Ant P. <antp@foo.org> ; \
                           my_hdr Reply-To: Ant P. <antp@foo.org> ; \
                           unmy_hdr Mail-Followup-To:'
send-hook "(~f @ba.org)"   'my_hdr From: Ant P. <antp@ba.org> ; \
                           my_hdr Reply-To: Ant P. <antp@ba.org> ; \
                           unmy_hdr Mail-Followup-To:'

folder-hook . "set sort=threads"
folder-hook Drafts "set sort=date-sent"
folder-hook Sent 'set sort=date-sent simple_search="~t %s | ~s %s"'

folder-hook ~/mail/foo/INBOX 'set folder="~/mail/foo"'                       
folder-hook ~/mail/ba/INBOX 'set folder="~/mail/ba"'
folder-hook . 'set postponed="+Drafts"'

The path can be a remote/IMAP mailbox URI

I've already had to weed out some other bad defaults just to be able to copy and paste long URLs.

hmmm ... again, not exactly sure the issue you're describing but that sounds as though its an issue with VISUAL, perhaps you have textwidth= set to <80 and so such urls are getting wrapped?

It's a mixed bag, but then again no other email program I've used has stood out as polished software, so I might as well give it a chance.

I wouldn't use anything else, it just takes time to grok configuration, and how best to approach any given setup.

best ... khay
