No you are not.

I use (al)pine on my OpenVMS system here as well as my main Linux host.  I
have mail going back to 2004 here and since 1996 at another public access
Unix host I use.  It's great when I'm out of town and can ssh in from my
phone and check the mail. :)  Pine does most everything I need without
having to worry about malware, phishing, etc ... the beauty of text.
