imap is not available everywhere, or only available as some expensive business 
grade option. and no, routing all mail via gmail is imo not a option.

also, the last time i checked the pop specification, it clearly showed the 
download and delete as separate commands.

oh, and the old osso-mail had this, so modest not having it is as close to 
regression as can think of...

i dont mind seperate inboxes. but what i mind is that i have to dig down into 
a menu each time i want to check the other one.

there was a user-made modification that allowed multiple inboxes on screen 
available at the itt forum. but that no longer works after the ssu update.

the perfect solution, imo, would be to give each account 2 checkboxes. 1 for 
putting mail into a single inbox or not. the other to have that seperate 
inbox showing up in the folder tree at all times.
