Your best bet is to encourage Microsoft and Netscape to provide mozilla.org with whatever client-side code is necessary to support their web-based services.

However, you could approach the appropriate standards organization, if one exists, and encourage them to define a specification for client to web-based services communications. At most, mozilla.org could support such a standard once defined. Anything beyond that is outside the scope of a SOFTWARE project.

As for Netscape forging some alliance with Microsoft?s Hotmail ... don?t hold your breath! Netscape is smart enough to know that if, as you say, Hotmail is the ancient Rome of European web-based email then it was not built nor will it be destroyed in a day. Netscape?s new Webmail empire will be constructed one new account at a time while the old empire is dismantled one convert at a time.
