What are we designing here? A new BBS system? Sounds much like it!
Anyway......... very good.
Since we are designing a new BBS-like mail system, I see a few more.
o Users want to roam (re-pickup mail from different client/machines) i.e.,
web vs pop3. Web control means server control of mail pointers, pop3 means
user control of mail pointers.
o User want off-line mail access capabilities. Automatic downloads/uploads
of mail, i.e., QWK, OPX, BW.
Accessibility, Integration, Security, Privacy
o Users want to do NON-SOCKET access, dialup directly. Note: Some Federal
security mandates may require it.

Subject: list of user-visible goals
I've attempted to collect a list of user-visible goals that people have
sent in and to loosely organize them. I've probably missed a few by
accident. I deliberately left out a couple of goals that I couldn't
see how to express from a user's point-of-view.
Anyway, take a look, and feel free to fill in any gaps you see.
