I would say though that our intention is *not* to do something "cool".

Yes, we don't want to stick to the traditional mode. We can't change  
the fact that technology is moving ahead and people are used to more  
dynamic applications on the web these days. And to me it makes sense:  
you can work a lot quicker that way. In fact you can easily replace a  
desktop client if you don't need to work offline.

A good tool is all we want though: a webmailer that allows you to do  
your work quickly. It's not about bells and whistles. We don't need to  
be "sexy". But it must be something that people can efficiently use.  
That is what we are aiming for at the moment.
