This is an area which I have always wanted to work on (since 4 years).
Integrate a mailing lists with a POP/IMAP server and integrate that
further with a opensource based development tools (for eg. Bugzilla),
this project has never seen the day of light.

Harsh might have some ideas for the current problem (marking a cc to

Idea 1 :
How about a small and simple utility that takes mails and puts them in
Forcasted problems - Spam 
Solutions - Authentication required for 

Till date there has been a lot of development over HTTP. What I propose
is a development on top of POP/IMAP/SMTP. This will mean we use
evolution as a frontend to bugzilla.

With evolution-data-server concept sky is the limit for what can be
acheived with this infrastucture.

Idea 2:
