Thanks for the thoughtful reply.

To clear up an incorrect impression I seem to have created, I'm not a 
M$ Office user, haven't ever been, except when I've been forced into 
it at some particular site where I've been on contract.  As a Virtual 
Access user I'm... Shall we say "underwhelmed" by Outlook, of any 
variety.  And in fact most M$ s/w.

The purpose behind my suggestion was primarily to offer a route to 
strengthen the LO package.  I agree that it is silly for people to 
expect LO/OO to be an exact replacement for M$O, but it seems to me 
that covering the same bases that M$O does would make LO a far more 
attractive, and easier, step to take for the mainstream.  LO/OO/Linux 
not offering that *easy* step is of course (?) why they still have so 
much "scope for expansion".

I thought I had seen a statement on the LO website which amounted to 
a claim to match M$O, but I can't find it now so I might've made it 
up, sorry.

It's true that Outlook isn't really "integrated" into the other 
packages, in fact it seems to me the LO/OO suite is far better 
integrated, however that's not the point I wanted to make.  It's the 
fact that LO doesn't offer anything in the email category.  I agree 
that using something already existing would be a smart move.  It only 
needs to install it, if that...

I just wanna change the world so that those small communities and 
passionate individuals really make a wide scale difference, just a 
small step. :-)
