TODO: This program was originally written in December 2000. Then a total redesign was made, which was released in December 2001. The file TODO.v2 lists holes in the current implementation. In this file, more long-term plans are listed. Plans for the (near?) future: * Thread lint Currently, threads are only detected based on some fields in the message header which are dedicated for this (the In-Reply-To and the References field), however, there are many more ways to try to correct things if these are not present. If a message does not contain the two mentioned fields, then look for a message which is at most a few days younger, whose sender is in the recipient-list of the current message, and where parts of the message are quoted (preceded by some symbols). * Persistent external files Extracting large message-parts into persistent external files. Mime::Entity puts attachments in external files during parsing. When the message is put in a folder again, the content is glued back into the folder. It should be nice to keep them external, such that the folder-file is much smaller, and parsing done quickly. * Many more folder-types I have a long wishlist of older-types. However, my knowledge on how they work is limited. Furthermore, I do not have test-data on them. - Emaul (? for compatibly with Mail::Folder) - News NNTP - Outlook writting... (reading is already available in ::Dbx) - Exchange - Netscape - Zip Compressed folders - Encrypt - DBI Database Any more? One of the main reasons that these are not implemented, is that my knowledge on how they work is insufficient. * Maildir quota * Cooperation with OpenPGP * MD5 checksums and more
