My memory is a bit fuzzy on this, but I seem to remember at least one,
likely more systems in the early 90's that did this. Lotus cc:Mail, Notes,
and possibly a system by Oracle of the time. Unfortunately it has been too
long to remember details, but perhaps someone who was internal to these
organizations may be able to shed a bit more light on the subject.
All-In-1 (from Digital Equipment Corporation) is another example that
has been around as of the late 80's which did this. IMHO M$ can't claim
it has invented this, but maybe they are the first to patent it?
