( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
  • Proper handling (and generation) of threading headers like "References" and "In-Reply-To". And, hence, a threaded view of my mail.
  • The ability to just display the text/plain version of the mail. Just about every webmail I've used insists on trying to render the HTML version - and I don't want to see that.
  • Virtual folders. The ability to put a mail into multiple folders. Maybe this can be achieved using tags (a bit like how Gmail does it).
  • Multiple identities. I send mail that needs to appear to come from many different email addresses. Each different identity needs to potentially have different settings for From:, Reply-To:, SMTP server and signature (and probably other things). Identity should be able to be set automatically according to various attributes of the mail that I'm replying to (from:, to:, the current mailbox, etc) but I need to be able to override it when I'm composing the mail.

I guess I'm really looking for a web-based version of mutt :)

Oh, and in my opinion, Mail::Box is looking a bit old and over-complex. If I was you I'd look at the modules from the Perl Email Project.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:

    < &lt;
    > &gt;
