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

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.
