mew: Message client for Emacs1

Mew is an interface to integrate

- Email - NetNews - MIME (Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions) - PGP (Pretty Good Privacy)

and to make it easy to view and compose them. With Mew you can send a picture of a birthday cake with the song "Happy Birthday to you" to your friend, which is encrypted by strong cryptograph.

Mew is an acronym of "Messaging in the Emacs World". You should spell it with the first letter capitalized and pronounce it as it is(i.e. meow of cats). When the author started programming it, he chose a cute word from his English dictionary. So, Mew.

Mew is officially supposed to run on Emacs 19.28, 19.34, and 20.3 or later, Mule 2.3 or later, and XEmacs 20.4 or later. Emacs other than described, such as Emacs 18, Nemacs, Mule 1, and XEmacs 19 and 20.3 are not and will not be supported in the future. Mew may support beta versions of Emacs but Mew conforms the spec of official release when available.
