Currently, DT allows for e-mail archiving by connecting to Mail and other clients with a plugin. Although that works, the process is slow at first (at least in my experience) and relies on mail rules afterwards.
I don’t think building a complete e-mail suite alike regular clients like Mail is feasible nor wanted, but in my opinion connecting to an IMAP client server that allows for archiving would be a better, user friendly and more logical approach than the plugin method. It’s also less dependent on other programs like Mail, nor would it require something like full disk access.
Should we ask the DT staff to consider implementing IMAP functionality to archive e-mail? I.e. connect and download received and send messages stored on an IMAP server. Nothing more, so no things like sending from DT, to keep things from getting overcomplicated.
