@jpsamaroo The help offer is greatly appreciated! Once I’ve done my due diligence I will definitely reach out to where you can freely contribute as you please.
Like you mentioned, the overheads are definitely an issue that made me. I was hoping to build something light but powerful for its size, and I can imagine that these overheads will be unattractive beyond the test room.
Hmm, well ideally I’d like explore popular protocols like IMAP, SMTP, and OpenPGP. Being able to download mail would be pretty neat too, so I will also look into supporting POP3. Just text for now, but I want see if I can tailor html embellishments to strong typography design. Web-based for now, but then I will see if I can develop a desktop client that supports synchronization, POP3, and offline use. If all of this goes well, I want to explore supporting other features as well like message deferrals (Gmail’s snooze feature), delayed sending, shared aliases, file conversion, file preview, automated bundling, and so forth. It’s all up in the air really. It would be neat to incorporate some visualization tools as well, but I will have to look more into this to make sure I don’t end up setting my machine on fire .
