If you don't have MH on your system already, you must install a
variant of MH. The Debian mh-e package does this for you automatically
(@pxref{Getting MH-E}). Most people use
@uref{http://www.nongnu.org/nmh/, nmh}, but you may be interested in
trying out @uref{http://www.gnu.org/software/mailutils/, GNU
mailutils}, which supports IMAP. Your GNU/Linux distribution probably
has packages for both of these.

Version 8 development was mostly driven by the rewrite of the manual.
It also brought mailutils support, S/MIME support, picon support, and
an improved interface for hiding header fields. The CVS repository was
migrated from SourceForge to Savannah (only for those files that were
already part of Emacs) and the software was completely reorganized to
push back two decades of entropy. Version 8 will appear in Emacs 22.1,
