Whats really held OOo and will hold LO back is the lack of an equivalent

Well, I disagree, but there is no way to prove one of us is right, so...
There are one of three ways it can be done.
1) fork something like evolution which has all that done and integrate it
into the LO suite
Evolution is extremely buggy, *especially* on Windows, but yes, even on
*nix... Yes, there are many people who run it without problems, but
there are far more who complain of constant crashes and bugs, even on
the stablest of systems (otherwise)...
2) or install software that already exists in the open source arena.
Thunderbird+Lightning would be the best other choice here...not perfect
by any stretch, but the only viable FLOSS alternative on Windows at the
moment, at least that I am aware of...
the problem with 2 is that it will greatly increase the download size, which
would pose issues for people with slow bandwidth.
Thunderbird+Lightning is not that big...
