"Elm sounds cool though, but how do I connect it to anything."

It's so long ago....IIRC we simply used it to read mail already deposited in the user's mailbox (~user/.mail ?, /usr/spool/mail/user ? can't remember). That could be either external mail coming in via ?sendmail (shudder) or generated internally through scripts piping to mail(1). There was a lot of the latter from the overnight batch. Outbound mail from it, IIRC, just worked but the whole set-up was configured before I came onboard and as it wasn't broken....
