New GUI Mail Client

 [1/5] from: jon_saltzman::pitzer::edu at: 30-Oct-2001 14:40


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 control. Thanks! -Jon Saltzman

I can assist you.... http://groups.yahoo.com/group/rebmail Enjoy!! Ammon PS the link leads to a group of (somewhat dormant since the Oct 11 attack) Developers building RebMail, the REBOL mail client. You may want to look at the files uploaded there, someone has been playing with some different skinning schemes. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Jon Saltzman" <[jon_saltzman--pitzer--edu]> To: <[rebol-list--rebol--com]> Sent: Tuesday, October 30, 2001 3:40 PM Subject: [REBOL] New GUI Mail Client

Hi Greg, thanks for the plug .... if Jon (or anyone else) wants to collaborate on improving my email client then let me know. I dont want to dilute the effort of Rebmail though .... which promises to be more complete, so Jon may want to join that group.

Yes, it's called LIST. It's not too simple to use, however there are examples around. Here's a starter for you: blk: [["one" "two"]["three" "four"]] view layout [list 400x200 [across field button] data blk] Refreshing requires a supply function.
