Hi, well those two suffer one fundamental feature: Offline mode! I need to write messages offline and asynchron. Further I need threading to keep track of all communication. Therefore mailinglists are the most efficient form of communication. If this can be cloned, good! If not this is a major problem at least to me. We still have news, how about a news-server? I don't see a value in replacing existing technology just to use new technology. What do I gain? Robert
