I have to agree with Andi. Since we're targeting people who would be
considered "power users" it's safe to assume that they require
features in their email clients that we aren't ready to deliver in
the beta timeframe.
I'm in the same boat as Andi in this being my number one barrier to
adoption of Chandler.
