not really. you can 'whiff' food.
'whiff' you email. maybe more to your understanding, never open email
in an email reader if you are unsure of email.
if you open an email in an editor that is not 'email aware', if there
is some thing in email that 'could/can/meantto' trigger response from
an email reader, 'should_not' trigger anything in editor.
to be more safe, use a hex editor.

i used to use mutt. now, i use thunderbird.
i set filters in thunderbird. i link folders in thunderbird.
i do not read email in my 'inbox' with thunderbird.

then you have not learned how to configure thunderbird. nor run a pre filter
on your email.
yes. i am running fedora 8, using mozilla thunderbird. and it feels good. ;o)
