Subject: A WWW cg-script that has real possibilities
Mime-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: TEXT/PLAIN; charset=US-ASCII

In a mailing list called net-happenings, I saw an announcement for
cgi-script called It basically allows you read an IMAP or
POP server. I got it and I think it has real possibilities. I think I
could use it to build a nice interface with it so that a person’s mail
client is really a WWW resource. I know it would never look like a real
mail client but it may be worth pursuing.
I ask because the “netscape”
people built a news interface that could eliminate the need for a separate
news client. If they can do that, do you think someone will do the
same but for mail within a WWW client. If they do, they should build it
around a imap server (not a pop server).

Just some thoughts.
