As an overlay button on the message we need a "magic next" button. This button jumps to the next unread message (even if that is in another folder).

Here you can find functionallity that still needs to be discussed, wether it makes sense to add it to the mobile version of KDE PIM.

We do not need this

  • Print, Rationale: not practical from a handheld decive, most have no printer connection
  • Shortcuts (keyboard "accellerators"), Rationale: not needed in a touch screen handheld
  • General Sieve Skripts
  • Out of office replies - use web-interface if needed
  • Multiple views - substituted by favorites concepts
  • Select all text - shortcut - not needed
  • Expire all folders - should be done automatically - no need to show this in the interface
  • Refresh local imap cache - not needed in KDEE 4.5 -
  • Undo

We need to discuss this

  • Templates (Format of replies etc.) - global, identity, folder - what do we need? - if possible move to external configurator - definitely no templates needed for folders
  • Certificate Manager - we need to provide basic features on the phone, supported by Kleopatra on the desktop; analysis of problems should be possible mobile
  • What does subscription actually do? Belongs to account level.
  • View source - how expensive is this?
  • Use fixed font - how expensive is this?
  • Copy - check that copying text is possible
  • General log viewer should contain: GnuPG log viewer, KDebug, Std. Error, ...
  • To many receivers warning, if replying to X addressees a visual reminder or dialog should be shown
  • Which email forwarding "modes" do we need? Currently with e3.5 it's possible to forward a mail "in line", "as attachment" or to redirect a mail.

We need to integrate this

  • Show message structure - we need some smart solution to handle multiple attachement and enbedded mails and to include parts of other objects into object (e.g. mail - to substitute drag&drop)
  • Filter
  • Threads / Move thread to trash / Mark thread as...
  • Anti-Spam (we will not provide an anti spam program - but we should be able to sort incoming mails by server added tags)
  • Anti-Virus (we will not provide an anti virus program - but we should be able to sort incoming mails by server added tags)
  • Folder specific sync & bandwidth and netstatus specific sync parameter
  • Fulltext search in attachments
  • Attachment missing warning if the email text contains the word attachment or "Anhang"
