 That's OK, but I also understand from your statement that you do not understand the MIME structure of today's emails in the first place.

I'm a user, not an author. I don't care one tiny bit about rules or structures having to do with how email is formatted for transmission. I just want to read, send, organize filter and search my emails.

All that stuff you're arguing about has nothing to do with the users of an email program. If it just reasonably displayed the email without all the tabs and attachments showing all the individual pieces and inline pictures and other noise id would be better at being an email program. It does all the filtering, searching and organizing stuff as well or better than anything, but it falls behind on the most basic requirement of just displaying an email so it's easy to read and understand. I don't care if other programs are broken and make life hard, that's not my problem. It just makes the puzzle a bit harder, but solvable.

There is so much time spent dissecting and arguing about why it works the way it does or why it can't work the way it should, but that's all noise.  Just make it work like every other email program ever written. Or at least make it an option to hide all the noise.
