FC4 Pine replacement?

In that case, I'd say that Pine is a better option because:
A: It can be used via SSH or Telnet, whatever's your preference.
B: I myself can't see the screen, and when I get a screen reader (speakup), 
the only one which works well is a command line screen reader which will not 
read the GUI. There is a gui screen reader for the GUI but it is unrelyable.

Also, in my experience (and I am by no means a techy or whatever), command 
line programs are a lot more stable than GUI ones.

There are my reasons for prefering Pine.

I'm not being funny? But what have Evolution and Thunderbird got over pine? 
Except that they are GUI?

No, Thunderbird is not command line driven. Look at:
