Marking up email on the Web is not a pretty picture in 2008.
Notable mail archiving services:
- I think the thread view is the most important feature. Google’s approach to threading mail as a bunched up conversation works quite well, though I still prefer the tree threaded structure that mutt does so well.
- Mailman implements RFC2369, though the W3C doesn’t seem to support this, though it does use Archived-At: which is quite useful. Google doesn’t seem to employ archive links to HTML sadly.
- I am not fond of framed views that I’ve seen some mail archiving services provide.
- Has anyone really studied how a RFC2822 mail message should be marked up in HTML? 3.1. Formats of Archived Message does not address the problem.
Any other relevant RFCs, tools or tips I might have missed?
