What does it matter what Gmail does? Gmail is for people
who like Gmail. If you don't like Gmail, but Emacs, you
can use the Emacs message mode to compose, the ~/.mailrc
file to keep an address book, and Gnus or Rmail to
read/organize.

If this is something you would like to do, but are
hesitant as to *how*, this list is here to help.

There is no point being frustrated what other people do
or do not.
