> Is "reading an email" one thing?

In fact, sometimes it can be the "only" thing you want. Most often it is the case with open source developers when they want to catch up a huge discussion thread. (Like bugs to email interface). Mutt is excellent here.

If I have something to add to the discussion, I have the option to use the command line or log in to web interface and post my response.
