IMO you've got a wrong idea of how averaged desktop MUA users want to
handle their needs regarding mailing.
I don't want to become a mailing expert, I'm already a Linux audio
production nerd. It's too time consuming to tune each component of a
install in an expert way, sometimes functionality should be provided by
software in an easy to use way. Btw. right now I noticed a nice editor
option in the "Others" tab. IMO this is what MUAs are for, that's why
several people don't use Vi or Emacs with manually set up procmail,
msmtp etc. ;).
