Hello,

I am graphic designer with experience in mobile UI design.

Please let me know if you would like to see a proposal for the Android UI of Squirell Mail.

Best regards,

Plugins have controls sufficient to minimize interface options. If you are
looking for more heavy customizations, you can as well go with own webmail
client or webmail add-on which uses only SquirrelMail IMAP API. Plugin's
CONS are that SquirrelMail is still "1024x768 or better" interface and it
won't match webmail designed for mobile screen or your plugin will have to
completely hijack interface and serve data in own webmail pages.

Android app would be a standalone email client. Email clients are designed
to interact with email servers and not with other email clients directly.
Your Android SquirrelMail app will be totally independent from SquirrelMail
or it will be monstrous reverse engineering of SquirrelMail webmail requests
wrapped in some web browser api.
