If IMAP weren't so lousy, we'd probably all still be using email.
@freakazoid what about POP?
@Just1nC POP does one thing and does it well and without any unneeded complexity or 50 different ways to misimplement the spec.
@Just1nC Unfortunately, it also only lets you deal with mail from one host in any reasonable way. Which is probably the problem: supporting the various different ways people want to deal with their mail and across multiple clients is hard.
@Just1nC This is why my client-server email protocol of choice is terminal over ssh.
@freakazoid Things like folders, multiple servers, and accounts should/would just be managed by the application.
