Here is what I have sent to my dev team and to the dev team of XCMail
Hello, my name as you can see is Chris Freeze. Currently I am running the operations over here at XFMail. I noticed on your last post to freshmeat that you are pretty much working alone and are looking for help with XCMail's development. What I want to present to you is a proposition. Both of us want the same thing. A good email client. I like alot of the design issues that you have started in XCMail, and I am working hard on XFMail's future with rewriting the core. Let's stop trying to compete with one another and focus our efforts together. With some of your ideas for indexing and plugin support with XFMail's feature base and multi-unix use we could get a new project going. We are currently both re-writing the core and switching our GUI over to Gtk under the codename Archimedes. I would really hope that you give my proposition some thought. If you choose not to allie yourself with me I will hold no ill will toward you. I just feel that the combined effort would give the Linux and more importantly the Unix community a superb email client.
