Together with the re-write of the address book which will introduce the
possibility to add several different sources (including LDAP servers)
the autocompletion will be changed to HTTP-Requests as well.

Should be possible with tables as well. This feature request has to wait
because there are more important things to fix first. Server side the
the IMAP lib already provides functions for threaded message listing.

Wasn't me but I now changed the Junk label. "Indésirables" is also what
the Apple Mail application uses for Junk.

First to come is an interface (class) that abstracts the address book
access. It's up to me to create this. After that I'm glad to get some
