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 E4.5 -
  • 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"
