- Support for multiple email accounts and multiple
- Threading for email.
- Support for character encodings other than ISO-Latin-1;
particularly ISO-8859-15 and UTF-8. (MacSOUP still assumes
a western encoding internally, so it can't be used for
languages such as Japanese or Polish; however, it handles
the Euro symbol properly at last.)

the display to those groups that contain the given
