I'm generally happy with the gmail web interface. Or perhaps I'm resigned to it's limitations.

I have the following tasks that come up:

  • Sort a conversation by the datestamp of the first message in the conversation, rather than the last.

  • Sort messages by size.

  • Remove attachments from a conversation, without losing the message, AND without resending it to myself.

  • Forward an entire conversation.

  • Find conversations where no message has label foo. (At present it will find conversations where at least one message doesn't have that label)

  • Split my account into two accounts, for business and personal, without changing datestamps.

Things it cannot do:

  • Muck up my labels. Most of my messages have 2 to 6 labels.
