AFIK, the email "capability" (not just an email "app" anymore) will be doing
exchange-like stuff pretty soon anyway.

As an example, class.boindex will feed any calling process all the data it 
needs to
show a list of messages (lang'ed labels and al), class.uiindex gets all its data
from class.boindex (of course) but all that "bo" data is exposed to anyone who
wants it.

class.uiindex can be a UI on its own or can be "modular" and simply return the
parsed html to a calling process that can then put that message list in its own
page,app, or whatever. The file email/index.php is kind of like a psuedo 
process" that just gets html returned from class.uiindex then outputs it, i.e. 
class uiindex never actually outputs any HTML when used as a "module"

Simple as that example is, it's an example that as I have said all alone, the
email "app", as it was, is really going to be a service that exposes "developer-
friendly" high-level functions and returns completely processed data, the 
process need know nothing about MIME, Subtypes, etc....

I'm sure a "connector" to evolution would be possible, of course I need to get 
done as far as organizie and exposing the functionality.
