[REBOL] Re: Shall we code a mail client?

From: ryanc:iesco-dms at: 15-Aug-2001 12:08

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 ideas. Having your own server really would be great, but I imagine getting ISPs to switch would be tricky. --Ryan David Vydra wrote:
