Perhaps the System of Outlook Express is a little bit simpler:
It places every sent msg in the Sentbox and marks unsend ones -
could cobine a "Resend - Button" in the context menu of msgs in the
Sentbox and the need for an Outbox would be out of the world ;)
This sounds much worse.
a) when you press send&receive sentbox needs to be scanned for unsent
b) it's not easy to notice a problem. if your outbox message count in
balsa isn't 0 it's clear there is a problem.
c) it lies. messages stuck in the outbox aren't *sent*, they are
waiting to be sent.
The only Problem then would be "network in trouble" in connection
imap-Sentbox - but there could be a fallback ~/.balsa/mbox where all
are (invisible to the user) cached when offline and submitted when
connection is back...
as oposed to a local outbox where unset mails are cached ? :)
as I said, that mailbox *may* not show in the mblist. i think it's
better if it shows but i don't feel particularly strongly about it.
(if you're thinking about offline mode and synchronizing, working
patches are welcome ;))
I think this would be the most obvious and transparent solution for
user -> To search for (in the mua) sent messages in the "Sentbox"
2 different ones! (Joe average doesn't care wether the mail is sent
transmitted already or not - he just trusts his mua to do it
This is just Wrong. Is that why outlook users call you up asking when
you didn't reply to messages they haven't sent yet ?
