Yes, egroupware will make you crazy. It was a moment of pure pleasure
when I nuked it. Imap is a dinosaur, that those who have mastered it,
use it. Those that haven't, cringe in abject terror just looking at it.
It really needs to be completely re-written by a normal sane person, who
knows nothing about emacs and vi. It should have gui's, that a simple
minded user could navigate without chain-smoking a pack of Little
Cigars, as I have done. :) Ric
