      Zawinski's Law of Software Envelopment:
      "Every program attempts to expand until it can read mail. Those programs which cannot so expand are replaced by ones which can."

      • Periodically check a POP box
      • Incoming mail becomes a content-object
        o parent->child by thread
      • macro to display email stuff
        o {mail:recent=10}


      • Intertwingle-like features: http://www.mozilla.org/blue-sky/misc/199805/intertwingle.html
      • Internally name by message-id?
      • Convert mail to page
      • Plugin to filter incoming mail
        o JIRA keys to issue links,
        o filter out spam (spam assassain headers)
        o Link mail subject -> conf page
        o If email exists, set creator to existing user
      • Link to/from/cc to relevant Confluence users
      • Honour spam assassin headers
      • Emails that are replies to outgoing notifications?
      • Mail attachments indexed and stored
