  Just for clarification, this is going to have interesting side-effects:
  - it's not going to work for those of us who do NOT use a web browser
    to send and/or manage their mail-traffic, and
  - even if - it seems to require JavaScript being enabled in the browser
    which, again, some of us do not have ON by default.
  This is not to say the approach is flawed, just pointing at the facts.
  (and being curious how long it's going to take till
   someone breeds a strain of 'wget' with JS support ;-)
