well. in fact, the support for sending mails is done by msmtp, the current smtp
implementation doesnt supports authentication and fails in many situations. It
would be good to get a look on it. Maybe by relaying on a real smtp local server
would be enought, or just by calling 'mail'.

attachment management has been already implemented (attach, detach), in a unix way
in 160LOC. by using stdin/stdout.

there is some basic support to receive mail. for pop3 its ok, but in imap4 there
are some issues. the most common usage atm is as a shell to query imap mail remotely.

a better syncronization algorithm should be done to get faster syncs.

as you see there are many fronts there :)

pgp support would be interesting too.
