Hi all, I'm very much in favor! Being able to still use e-mail while also having a convenient and pretty-looking interface is something I look *really* forward to.
My only question is: what happens to the old archives? Do we keep them online as-is, or is there a plan to also migrate them? The former means of course less effort, but the latter would keep everything unified in one UI for example. I'm fine with whatever you choose :-) Thanks in any case for taking this up, Emmanuele!
