console kmail counterpart

I use kmail only as my mail client,  unfortrunately sometimes I require to 
read my mails when Im not in front of my laptop using remote access (ssh). 
The problem of course is that I can't run kmail throught the ssh console so I 
need a console based app (mutt, pine, elm??) to access my Mail directory 
(read only access) and find the mails I require at the moment.

Im pretty sure some ppl here access their mails in the console and was 
wondering if someone can give me some advice??  I just dont want to 
experiment with my Mail directory and loose my mails by accessing with the 
wrong mail client....

here are the requirements:

	- Console base : )
	- Maildir support
	- Read Only 
	- Be able to see the structure organization of my mails.. (very deep 
directory hierarchies)
Also optional but no necessary

	- POP access  (optional since usually kde will be running and kmail will also 
be running while I access it remotely, in this case the client must support 
the same locking mechanisms that kmail does)

any advice is greatly appreciated...
