Glad this thread is back.
Got any good info on mutt or mailx configuration? At least on the mutt side which I’ve looked into the most, the various sources of documentation seem to be giving split and sometimes contradictory info on how to set it up to send and receive email for a remote account (as in not running directly on the email server as mutt assumes by default) or setting up multiples.

Also install sway

I think you're looking for something like OfflineIMAP. Also, check Luke Smith's muttwizard. He's kinda of a meme, but i find that some of his configs are a nice place to go from.

Has anyone here used 9front or Plan 9? How is it?

I remember this anon from /bst/ threads who had Plan 9 (or something that looked like it) and was using it as his daily driver.
