Yeah, I noticed that on the todo list. That would be very nice -
something that has always bothered me about email is that I cant just
add notes to them (in most clients). And not having to actually send
myself a message to "add" a note would be less work!

I've been trying to figure out if a web browser mode would be possible
in the current mode system. I couldnt figure out if the mode stuff was
reliant on ncurses or just happened to be modes that used ncurses.

To be honest I probably wouldnt use the --inbox flag that often, it
just struck me as nicer way to implement no having an inbox. I use the
search flag quite a lot though so good to see it got in :)
