I dont want to dilute the effort of Rebmail though .... which promises to be more complete,
so Jon may want to join that group.

Subject: [REBOL] New GUI Mail Client
> Hi all! I'm working on a GUI mail client for Rebol which I'll release
when I get further along, but I'm having a bit of trouble, and I was
wondering if anyone could give an assist here -
> 1) When I'm receiving messages, I'm using the "import-email" function,
but sometimes if the mail is from Outlook, or another source, it gives me a
malformed headers error, and the object is not created properly. How
complete is the POP implementation? (am I just wasting my time trying to
make this GUI client?)
> 2) To display the messages in the GUI, a grid control or multiple field
text-list would be handy - is there any such item, or could that be a wish
list item? Java has a nice grid control, maybe one could sort of copy that
idea in a future release.
> 3) Is there any way to display an HTML page in a layout window? I could
use a prewritten CGI mail script in that case, and wouldn't need a grid
