Watching my wife on her phone, she calls up an email, reads it, thinks 
the link is interesting, goes to it, all seamless. 
edbrowse isn't like that. 
We save the mail unformatted, quit, call up regular edbrowse, read the 
email, browse the email, go to the hyperlink, etc. 
There may be times we wish we were more seamless, especially when 
writing scripts. 
Do it all in one edbrowse session. 
But as I play with it a little, I still think what we have today is 
faster for most things, check email, throw away spam, save important 
mails, etc. 
So for now it's just playing and honestly it hasn't been much code, or 
I wouldn't be doing it. 
In the latest, make an empty buffer, then type something like "imap 1" 
If block 1 is your imap descriptor. 
The folders will be in your buffer, with message counts. 
You can't do anything with them yet, the idea would be to type g and 
then get a list of envelopes, sort of like directory mode. 
On an envelope type g to read or manage the email. 
^ to get back. You get the idea.
