The skin is designed to attempt a look and feel similar to modern mail clients.

Some of the features:

  • Intuitive interface
  • Low required bandwidth once the session is open
  • Rich-text edition of composed messages
  • Collapsible tree view for the mailbox list
  • Per-user nonvolatile custom skin settings, saved in the personal web space
  • Automatic completion of typed addresses from the address book
  • Daily, weekly and monthly view for the Calendar
  • Three-pane view to directly access folders and messages
  • Background processing using AJAX for a fluid interface without reloads
  • Inline styled message windows
  • Intuitive rules wizard
  • Can be set to automatically switch from SSL to normal after logon
  • Easy to translate (see Languages section in the skins summary page)
  • Inline spell checker (a separate plugin is required)
  • Easy integration with PolluStop
  • "New mail" sound

Development in progress - LookOut Mail v4 (stay tuned)

  • Tabbed interface to keep everything in the same window
  • Ability to send text/alternative messages
  • Ability to upload images and send them inline with outgoing messages
  • Ability to reply to text/html message while keeping the original HTML formatting
  • Ability to display inline styles of received messages
  • Linear folder view (no First/Prev/Next/Last buttons to go to another message list "page")
  • Much quicker folder view generation, as the HTML objects are generated only for the visible items

Development is going on but will take a while as there is no direct funding for it before it is complete - paying contracts take precedence.
