SOS! Please add the option to sort all messages in the inbox by EMAIL ADDRESS, not just by "sender." Why is this not a standard sorting option? I run a business, and deal with hundreds of different customers every day. I need to sort by email address! I'm sure that countless other businesses would LOVE this sorting option. Thank you!

the blue candy strip indicating connection is visually annoying. Has potential. Don't like the Platinum finish. Lionheart

An email app without IMAP support is no email app at all. This should be priority number one. Number zero.

"An email app without IMAP support is no email app at all. This should be priority number one." I think many of the people who demand IMAP are confused about what the IMAP protocol provides. It is not an upgrade to POP, it is a different scheme for accessing emails, which presupposes a single server accessible at all times, and allows you to store information about which emails have been read/moved to a different folder etc and share it between multiple clients. This can be more elegant than POP if you share several computers and wish to synchronise moving messages between folders etc. As Balzac doesn't use folders, this is of limited use. I am hoping however to map flavours to custom IMAP flags at some point in the future, at which point the app will support IMAP. I am planning IMAP support for version 1.1 (the underlying library supports it so it won't be too hard to add). Many people use POP quite happily on servers which also provide IMAP - IMAP is not suitable for all situations, and if you locally cache messages becomes very similar to POP (apart from the folder synching, which as I explained is not relevant to Balzac).

Looks nice, I'd like to use it. I like the idea of the "Flavors". It's missing a couple things that would make me not use it - LDAP searching for addresses and IMAP. I just don't understand why all these e-mail clients keep coming out without IMAP. BAH! I haven't really be able to use it yet. It just hung when I asked it to connect to the Exchange server here at work.

Hi Phil, IMAP support will come in a future version - in fact for this Application (precisely because it doesn't use folders) I wanted to think about how best to add it, and how best to map folders on the server to flavours. If a flavour is added or removed from a message on the computer, should it affect the server at all? That kind of thing. Many people don't use IMAP and are happy with POP (I'm aware lots do as well); POP is not necessarily inferior, depends on your needs. I should have added it to the poll though... As to the exchange server, if you could give me any details that would be helpful, as that's what the beta is to try to catch. Were you just receiving mail on that account? Was there anything in the console log? Did you have any messages at all flash up? When you say hung, do you mean you got a beachball of death or it just didn't connect? Presumably it didn't crash. Did you get any messages at all? I assume you were trying to connect via POP? If you have more details you can email me (presumably not using Balzac with the Exchange Server : ). Kenny
