The Mac I use as work has a mail client called "Mail". I'll bet they racked their brains coming up with that name.

But anyway, the name of the client is not the point of this post, but rather the choice in terminology it uses when retrieving mail. It doesn't say "retrieving mail" or " getting mail" of "grabbing spam". It says "finding unseen messages." Is it just me, or does that sound like something you would get in a MUD or other online adveture?
"Look rock"
"Unseen message found in rock"
"Look message"
"No message here"
"Look unseen message"
"Unseen message:
      Enlargeth thy phallus in a fortnight or less. 
      Read bullitin board message #6969 in town 
      square for more information."
"Drop unseen message"
"Can not drop unseen message. Item maybe cursed."

I think I might read way too much into these things.
