Sounds cool.  One feature request - download message headers first, and then download the rest of the message body.  I hate this fact about Outlook, when you've got hundreds of emails to download, it gets tied up until a few dozen have already been downloaded.  With all the spam I get, I need the ability to review subject/from headers quickly and delete the emails before they ever get downloaded.

Pine / PC-Pine is the open source eMail client that is closest to being a reasonable competitor to Outlook at the present.  Pine does support LDAP & SSL;  however, it has an inconsistent user interface and is a bit "clunky", in my opinion.

I'm working on a Java eMail client that will support LDAP/SSL and hopefully be similar in "look & feel" to Outlook.  It's at least a month away from being ready, and whether I make it publicly available and how (e.g., open source) is an open question at present.

Hello All,


P.S.  I've been looking for anything OPENSOURCE that could compete with MS Outlook.  Any suggestions would be much appreciated.  I've looked at sourceforge and freshmeat with no luck.
