IMHO! I dont understand this discussions about POP3/IMAP/SMTP.
That all the people on the list is talking about :-)

First of all we need to have a good gnomebased mail "reader"
that have all features as pine/mutt, search functions and other
important stuff. In the moment balsa bug as hell and is unusabel as

Fetchmail/Sendmail is doing the other things greats as daemons :-)

When we have a good working mailer then we should start talking about 
implement POP3/SMTP/IMAP as libs or maybe use gnome-mailer codebase.

Just IMHO, dont want to start any flamewar :-)
