The way I use email is just too complicated for my own good and needs changing. As it stands I have two mail clients on two separate PCs. Notes client on the Windows desktop the and Mail.app on the Mac laptop, collecting mail to codestore.net and to anything else, respectively. Both allow me to login from anywhere, using a browser, and they both store the mail centrally on the mail server. Both clients allow me to copy the messages locally and reply to them without being online. Both work and both have their strengths and their weaknesses. What I want to do is cut one of them out of the equation.
It's all my own fault of course. I've got too many domains hosted in too many different places and using different mail systems. The trouble now is that making it simple is going to be anything but simple. One thing that would help is a perfect mail client. Tomorrow I will describe the spec of my ideal mail system. Hopefully one of you guys will point out what is probably already right beneath my nose.
