Description

I'm not sure the component for mail. 

You should be able to put in mail filters that use script, just like Outlook. 
It should also have many of the features of outlook such as a calendar. 

You said you don't want to do a calendar, and just want to stick with a 
browser. Why not compete with outlook along with IE5.0? They are both built on 
the same theme. What's wrong with making your product have more features? Isn't 
that the whole idea of the mozilla project? To have more features and less bugs?

If you do a calendar make sure you have:
Time slots for scheduling, along with a general field for tasks that don't have 
a specific time each day. Along with tasks, there should be a simple text box 
for notes for each day.

You enter tasks from the main calendar screen by double clicking on a line and 
then entering info and alarm etc. much like outlook. Then it inserts that task 
on the day. You can click on a task and change its day.

You can view all notes sorted by day at the same time in one text box, and 
double click on a note to edit its contents and date.

I think you can make your mail client better than outlook. If not, then why 
include it?
boberb - Sadly, we are a little bit too far down the line to start changing the 
specifications of what we are implementing. Changing specs at such a late stage 
is a recipe for overruns, bloat and dodgy code. The first release of Mozilla 
has, as far as I know, no plans for a calendar.

On the other hand, if you would like to, or you can find someone to, write a 
calendar for Mozilla, that would be fab :-)

I found someone who is interested in helping me with the calendar. Would I be 
able to write it as a seperate program using the GNU utils so that you can cut 
and paste the code into the program. If so or if I write it as part of the 
mozilla code, what are the guidelines? How do I compile just that part? Would 
it be a good idea to write it seperately as a seperate program and then later 
add it to the code?
