=============== This gmail crap can't cite.

That means you get a <x86-byte-package> with instructions on how
to interface it with Win | Mac86 | Linux86,
to promote the abusive WinTel monopoly.

In the 90s I could use ETHO to locally-cache the headers of my ISP's
POP.  Then WinTel screwed the ISP, so that now I MUST use gmail.

Can any linux based system [preferably ETHO] handle the SSL?TLC
complexity of gmail;
1. without using the absurd http interface;
2. without being permanently on-line.

`mutt` [eg.] apparently wants to have on-line contact with the ISP, before
you can see the <header-list/Directory>.

Good old ETHO knew that your cached <header list> could only differ
from that currently with the ISP, by the new entries.
So that if you asked for the 3rd most recent entry of your local cache-view
[without needing to get a new dir update], then that corresponded to the
Nth oldest mail.

The system counts the mail-dir-entries from the OLDEST, but
presents it to the user from the newest, since 'stack-mode' is the natural
way for humans to handle tasks.
