I personally like it, and I think the fellow who had the idea about the
customizable keybindings was a great idea.  Having it so that there would
be several choices, of keybindings and then a customizeable one was a good
idea.  About the multiple user thing.. you know how communicator ( well in
the windows version ) has the choice of which user to start up as?  Under
a menu there could be a list of different users and you could change them
on the fly perhaps?  There could also be a drop down in each compose
dialog to send as different users.. but the main one under a menu would
control everything from which mailboxes it polls, etc.
Has anyone worked with the rbl in sendmail ? the realtime blackhole list
(, for spam rejection and whatnot.. would it be
feasable for a client side version of this in the email client?  and a
little option to turn this on and off in preferences ofcourse.  i dont
think i've seen a rbl implementation in the actual client before..  and
again i don't even know if this is realistic or not.
