Over time I have tried a tone of email clients and I didn't like any of
I mean I liked a feature in one client, another feature in another client,
but I have never found one email client that has them all.

I start thinking about writing my own client, just to have all the features
that I will like
to have, and to be able to customize it as I want and when I want.

Lately I have start using Eclipse as my development tool and I have to say
that I like it a lot.
I will like to start using Eclipse platform, specialy SWT/JFace for building
my dream Email/News client.

What I have in mind is to throw away the whole Workbench stuff that I don't
need it
and start building a new UI on top of the Eclipse core ( this mean that it
cannot be a plugin right? ).
I don't want to build an "email perspective", I will like to be a stand
alone application that has nothing in common
with an IDE.

The problem is that I don't know where to start :).
The plug-in development documentation is a good start, but I'm not sure
that's what
I need, so maybe some of you guys can point me into the right direction.

I could start by taking the sources and start steping into the code to see
how it's working,
but maybe is there a better way to do it.

I'll appreciate any kind of feedback.
