Hi all,
I couldn't find this anywhere yet, so... I wrote a sbemail client for the command line. It requires libvmime >= 0.81 and libncurses and should compile fine under Linux, though it's probably not hard to port to Windows and MacOS X.
I'd be happy to hear comments if you've given it a try.
There's a short usage description at the top of the cpp file. It currently talks to IMAPs and SMTP servers.
See http://tinyurl.com/3dhuva for the source.

It displays an email and lets you reply to it (simply by typing the reply) or delete it. Optionally it can then display another email. "Useful" I hear you say? Indeed ;-)

I can't figure it out. How do you get it to work? I installed libmime-08.1 and now I don't know what to do.

Could you be more specific please as to what's not working? Essentially here are the necessary steps:
1) Download sbemail.cpp and sbemail.h into some directory
2) Compile: E.g. "g++ -c -O2 -o sbemail.o sbemail.cpp"; note that you'll probably have to specify your libvmime include directory, i.e. "g++ -c -O2 -o sbemail.o -I/thisis/where/I/installed/libvmime/ sbemail.cpp".
3) Link: E.g. "g++ -o sbemail -s sbemail.o -lvmime -lncurses"; but again you'll most certainly have to specify your libvmime library directory, i.e. "g++ -o sbemail -s sbemail.o -L/thisis/where/I/installed/libvmime/src/.libs" -lvmime -lncurses" or something.
4) Run! I mean, run the program. You have to specify an IMAPs server on the command line, from which you'll fetch an email. Oh: If you're using your own version of libvmime, you may also need to set the LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable so that the library is found at run-time, e.g. "LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/thisis/where/I/installed/libvmime/src/.libs ./sbemail -s myserver.etc -u depressio".

Let me know if any of this isn't clear or if you're encountering errors. Sorry for the difficulties with the vmime library; if you install it properly into your system you won't have to do any of the awkward stuff above.

Good luck!

This would go perfectly on the Fanstuff wiki.

What seems to be the problem is, I click "sbemail.cpp" and "sbemail.h" I get a whole long page of text. I have no idea how to even download them. I'm clueless. :p

You can either try "save as" in your browser when you open those files, or on the previous page right-click the link and say "save target as"...

You will need some working compiler around, though; if you're unfamiliar with compiling C++ source, maybe this isn't a good idea... Also, I don't currently have a working version for Windows because of the lack of working vmime and ncurses libraries for that (but that's purely my own problem; in principle it could be done easily).

I have no idea about how to compile. So this wouldn't be a good idea. That sux. I want to use that.
