Hi Andreas,

Yes, that was my goal (and enhancing the plugin architecture as necessary). I apologize for not making this clear to everyone.

I am waiting on Ludovic to decide if I can take over GNUMail and Pantomime and also work on my plugin ideas.

Thanks,

-Jason

Hi Jason,
if you plan to realize those things via plug-ins then I am for it. I would not like GNUMail to bloat up with los of functions that are only loosely related to e-mail. I want/need an e-mail-only client and GNUMail is exactly that.
Enhancements via plug-ins that can be installed or not are OK.

Hi Gunther,

A plug-in architecture what was I had planned, I see I did not state that at
all. Opps.

I had been writing Apple Mail Plugins recently, I was already in that
mindset.

Hi All,
I am discussing GNUMail with Ludovic.
What would everyone think of more of a CRM type app like DayLite by Market Circle? Not totally like that, but where you would have a record
for each contact and besides seeing e-mail you sent, see  other
interactions, store data about them (address, e-mail stuff, notes, PDF
files and other attachment type items you have sent etc)
My other thought was a different UI, maybe something more like GMail?
I guess I am looking for thoughts to enhance GNUMail...
Thanks for the input.

There is alreay a calender app which also does tasks: SimpleCalendar
There is a mail app: GNUMail
There is an address book: Addresses
There is a notes app: Affiche

So what you need is:
A sync application
A workflow manager
A project manager

And through services you can integrate them.

I also fully agree to that.

Jason: I read GNUMail a while ago to get inspiration for my own
application design. Have you had a look at GNUMail's plugin architecture? I'm a bit concerned whether your proposed large-scale changes to the
application will be possible without destroying that  architecture.

Best regards,
Günther
