arawnsley: What does yours do that others do not? This article doesn't appear to describe much. Why might people actually want to use Hermes in preference to anything else? You're being very vague indeed. Would it be things to do with the integration with the rest of your "Internet Suite"? Is there some weird API it must obey? If flexibility of how mail is fetched is considered an underwhelming feature, what exactly does Hermes do if it's first use isn't to fetch mail?

Tony Haines: For the same reason I like to catch up every so often with old friends who I don't meet these days very often.
