Subject Mail transport
Date Fri, 13 Dec 2002 21:25:48 GMT
I was just glancing over the mail transport and I have some problems with 
it.  First off, looking at MailSender, it isn't clear how received 
messages are correlated with sent messages, nor does it appear as if the 
act of immediately checking for the new email response immediately after 
sending the request is an approach that will work given email latency. 
While I think an SMTP/POP3 transport is a great idea, I'd rather see this 
implemented on top of the IME stuff which provides correlation and 
request/response synchronization features built in.  Doing this work now 
(and pushing off the mail transport a bit) will save us much more work 
later.  In short, I'm voting against this transport going into the main 
code.  Please either pull it back out and put it into the proposals 
directory, or filter it out of the build using the compileime option.
