Using OmniaMea with other e-mail clients

Another user's question:

So if I understood you correctly, you did not create a standalone application, "just" an add-on to MS Outlook, am I right? But what if you use Thunderbird - will you also be able to use OmniaMea?

OmniaMea is actually a standalone application that, in the version 1.0, integrates with Outlook for its email features. If you use a different email client, you will be able to use all other features of OmniaMea - news, RSS, file indexing and so on. In the next release after 1.0, we will have our own email client, but integration with Outlook will always remain a supported mode of operation, because many corporate environments require the use of Outlook.

We currently don't have the development resources to support integration with other email clients, so we hope to get some help from third-party developers, through our open API. Since Thunderbird is open-source, there should be no major problems in developing a plugin for integrating with it.

What is the purpose of an integration when you (will) have your own email client?

Some users may want to continue using their existing e-mail clients with OmniaMea. We don't really expect that the first release of our own email client will have 100% of the features of all other clients out there.

What is the platform OmniaMea will run on? Will it run on Linux and Mac OS X as well? If not, I guess I need to forget it.

Any possibility of Lotus integration?
