Ah, that would be nice. I dont know stink about the mail protocols myself. I do
wonder if you could just stop reading the message when you got to the attachement
part. I know, not exactly what your after, but it is implementable from the client
end. Anyhow worth noting as a star feature.
* Allow me to download attachements apart from my regular mail.
Also, I believe folders could be done on the server by implementing a path system
to the subject field. Example:
/Lists/Rebol/Re: [REBOL] Re: Shall we code a mail client?
Of course not compatable with other clients. I suppose another way is to use
multiple accounts as folders. Its all kind of messy though. Just giving you some
Having your own server really would be great, but I imagine getting ISPs to switch
would be tricky.
