[vox] Re: [vox][ot] Why threaded mailer (Was posting etiquette on vox-tech)

Moved to vox for obvious reasons.

Is there a quickstart guide to Mutt?  I tried it a couple times and
realized I can't even find a key stroke to look at my other folders.

I don't use threaded mailer (PINE) but it's still good to conform to
threading because... it's like those pesky spaces and tabs at the end of
lines you can't see in source codes but you know they're there and they
bug you so much...
