Message Views Coming to Mozilla in 1.3 Alpha

Monday November 4th, 2002

Seth Spitzer has posted a message to netscape.public.mozilla.mail-news about a new feature for Mail & Newsgroups known as 'message views'. The feature, coded by Scott "mscott" MacGregor, allows you to apply what are essentially saved searches to your mail folders and subscribed newsgroups. By default, several message views will be defined, including 'People I Know' (messages from people in your Personal Address Book), 'Not Junk' (which will be enabled when the spam filtering feature has landed) and the self-explanatory 'All' and 'Unread'. There's also views for each of your message labels and you'll be able to create your own views using a dialogue similar to the Search Messages UI. For more details, read the relevant thread in netscape.public.mozilla.mail-news or take a look at the bug, which includes a couple of pretty screenshots.

Mozilla handles IMAP fine. I've been using Mozilla'a IMAP functionality for several years and it works great. Mozilla operates with the IMAP standard just fine. That means we work with any IMAP servers that do IMAP appropriately. Netscape Webmail is not straight IMAP. Netscape webmail uses some proprietary stuff and IMAP, support for the proprietary stuff isn't in the Mozilla tree and probably shouldn't be. We don't support any of the other proprietary webmail mess either. We do POP and IMAP as the standards are written. If your webmail offers real IMAP or real POP services then Mozilla will work with that. I don't think that it's a very good idea to add a bunch of code to support one non-standard email server. If someone did an implementation I'd recommend taking it to and making it into an extension/plugin.
