Terminal Email

I like this little cute message:

Although… in my case, it’s not actually a real indicator that I have email at any of my main inboxes. If I type mail, I can see the messages.

Since I’m on macOS I figured it would be whatever Mail.app is seeing, but that’s doesn’t seem to be the case. 🤷‍♀️

There is a good StackOverflow answer on going through them. They do appear to have been legit emails at some point for me, but they are very old. I ended up just nuking them all.

It’s a little intriguing though! I know from a few “interview” responses I got that some of you do indeed check your email through the command line. I was kinda hoping if I set my Mail.app on macOS the mail command would automatically show me the inbox from there, but it doesn’t seem to. I’m not sure if I care enough to set up a command line email tool just now. Maybe a rainy Sunday thing.
