This is clearly a Friday question :)

Evolution when I am at home connecting via IMAP to my mail server in

If I am away from home and don't have my laptop, or have no connectivity
with my laptop, maybe at work, I'll use ssh to my mail server and use
mutt on it directly.

If I'm at friends or relatives without my laptop I'll break out the Palm
TX PDA and connect over WiFi or bluetooth (through my phone) and use
either mutt (painful) or the built in imap mail client on the Palm.

If I only have my mobile phone, a Nokia 6680, then I'll use gprs/3G and
connect over ssh using putty to my server and run mutt :)

This is one of the reasons I love mailing lists and hate forums. I can
read mail _anywhere_ on pretty much any device, and can reply both
online and offline.
