Just figured that I would announce that I am working on a email client module for nukes. Basically it is a web based email client using IMAP and SMTP that can provide email capability for a nukes user.
I should have a workable model in a week or two although it will have plenty of room for expansion. My initial model isnt using templates or EJB, I am doing JDBC work directly because I dont have any EJB experience.
My initial release will support text/plain and text/html messages, and will ignore attachments, and will be functional for sending/replying to messages.
Stay tuned, I'll post my homepage where the client can be found when I have a working simple client done.
