Oddpost - Your opinion on this Web-based email sys

Check out

They have a 30-day trial version. What is your opinion on drag and drop features?

How do they do that? I don't think it is a applet - which was afar as I knew the only way to achieve this.

it's DHTML.  search the archives here for a thread about it maybe 5 months ago.

I've been using it for a year.  I like it pretty darn well, although I'm finding myself using Outlook Express more to browse newsgroups and use email at the same time.

My only real complaint is that it lacks some of the features found in a desktop mail application, and seems to have a perpetual "in beta" feel to it.  But it's great if you're using multiple machines -- many times better than Hotmail or Yahoo Mail, for example. 

You can combine the benefits of a desktop email client with a "use anywhere" service like Oddpost like I do, by using your desktop e-mail application to access your Oddpost account through IMAP, and then use the Oddpost Web interface when you're on the road.

IE specific DHTML that is.
