[MlMt] Bounties

First of all, I just want to say that Benny is amazing. I wrote [one of 
the first multimedia email applications on 
a long time ago, and for many years I've considered doing a more modern 
one. MailMate makes that moot. It's an amazing application, and with the 
new HTML features coming down the road, it's even more so.

Secondly, I want to say that I've put my money where my mouth is, and 
I'd like to encourage everyone else to do the same. I **live** in email, 
and I'm sure many of you do. Benny is making his living doing a really 
hard thing; writing an application that competes with something that's 
available for free. MailMate will always be a niche application targeted 
at hardcore mail users, and we need to support that. When MailMate 
started supporting the features I needed to use it at work I bought 
several extra licenses I didn't need. Because I **need** this 
application, and I need Benny to be able to make a good living 
supporting it. It was wonderful that I was able to hack MailMate to work 
with HTML mail before. It's even _more_ wonderful that I don't have to 
anymore. If you find MailMate invaluable for your work—and I know many 
of you do—please contribute more.

Thirdly, I want to put out a bounty for the one feature I'm missing. 
I'll pitch in an additional $100 when MailMate supports sorting threaded 
messages sorted by the most recent item in the thread. It's the one 
thing missing for me to use sorting by threads in my inbox. Right now I 
use a very nice three pane solution someone provided (and it's _amazing_ 
that MailMate can be extended that way), that puts a separate "sort by 
subject" pane to one side, and I leave my inbox simply sorted by date, 
without grouping. That's almost what I want, but not quite. I'd like to 
have my inbox display threads with the most recent messages first, so 
that if someone replies to something three weeks ago (and they do a 
lot), it doesn't get lost in my 4000 message Inbox. If you feel 
similarly, please pledge your support. And I encourage Benny to set up a 
way for people to vote for feature with their wallet. This is an amazing 
product, and I can't work without it.

Thank you Benny.
