Yes. But I just want to create a RESTful 'view' at IMAP / POP3.
Nothing to edit / change, only view. :) I think that is possible with
the 'legacy' protocols. :)

Well, the RESTful email system is a long term project and I don't have
investigated much time to think about RESTful operations. Maybe Jérôme
(the deveoloper of Restlet) has investigated more thought on it.

The complete RESTful e-mail system is just an idea. I want my RESTful
views first. :)

I think it might be easier to transform XML into another format than
the plain e-mail text.

What do you want to achive with your project? Leave IMAP/POP3
completely out?
