>> Hi,
>> I didn't find anything in IMP mailing list archives related to "Zimlet".
>> For those not aware of Zimlets, Zimlets are embedded in Zimbra application
>> to analyse emails content and add clickable HTML reference.
>> For example, when a phone number is recognized within email sender's
>> signature, its phone number can be dialed with a single click (see also:
>> http://www.zimbra.com/products/zimlets.html).
>> Email view remains almost unchanged up to the moment the user's mouse is
>> rolling over a recognized pattern.
>> Does any equivalent feature exist within Horde DIMP (as it heavily relies on
>> AJAX) ?
> No.  (Not to mention it seems like a waste of development time and of
> dubious value to be able to one-click a phone number on a computer.
> But that's just me)

Also, that being said, if you wanted to do something like this you  
should do it server side, not client side.  In DIMP, at least, you can  
alter the message text however you want by using the messageview hook.
