Monks -

I am preparing to write a webmail module as part of a larger app I have written (and plan to release as open-source soon). The webmail module would be part of a larger initiative to provide CRM* functionality in the app.

The Good News:
I found Mail::Box, and it looks great. Documented, clean, comprehensive, etc. Wonderful. I see "PerlWebMail" uses Mail::Box as well.
I found Net::Server::Mail::SMTP, and it also looks great. I can just add my hooks for the functions I want to override. Very good.

This is a project I've been kicking around for over a year and now that I have time to work on it, I'm ready to make things happen.

My Question:
What features would your Dream WebMail App have? Let's get the obvious ones out of the way:

  • Contact management
  • Reply/Forward/Delete
  • Spam filters
  • Unicode support
  • Multiple folders
  • Send and receive attachments
  • Virus scanning
  • User-definable filters to sort incoming mail into filters.
So - what features would your Dream WebMail App have?

* Customer Relationship Management

      Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
