[REBOL] Shall we code a mail client?

From: dvydra:orion-it at: 14-Aug-2001 19:58

I say that some of us need to choose a goal(s) and start a project or two on in search of the "Killer App". I would like to make sure that we consider business (probability of success, target audience, etc.) as well as technical issues. As I said before, I need a mail client that has folders, is completly server-based, and is non-HTML so I can go to any machine and get to my folders without the click-and-wait syndrome. Still I need an HTML client as a backup. What would be the simplest way to implement this? Perhaps it would not be too difficult to screen-scrape Yahoo mail as a test or we could build a completely independent client/server solution. Let us remember that Hotmail was sold for $400M after 18 months in business. I wonder what MS thinks of that investment these days :) Anyone interested in giving this a try?
