There's David's context-version check, the FAQ, and this mailing-list's
page and appended signature.

I've been thinking a bit more about this.  A folder of test emails that
can be tested by a installed command available to the user.  That can
either use what it thinks is a good modern configuration so the user can
see what's possible in theory, or the user's configuration so they can
test their set up on a variety of emails.  The former could be built on
the fly based on what commands are installed, e.g. lynx(1) v. links(1).

Cheers, Ralph.
