I’ve searched Google and can’t find anything directly speaking to this question/idea.
I would really like to use Discourse for Gmail. Think- email for discourse in reverse. Lots of people want to be able to reply to a topic directly from their Gmail account. What I’d like to do is the opposite. I want to manage my Gmail through a Discourse interface.
I like the group conversations, and the modern UI/UX, and the dating system of reading old messages and replies.
This is not only the perfect platform for forum discussion and group conversation, but also 1-on-1 direct email as well. Since 1-on-1 DMs are already supported here, I think it would be great if I had a way of either:
- Digesting Gmail through Discourse
- Using my own mail server with Discourse as the front-end.
I prefer the former. I do not know how I would even start working on a project like this, but the level of organization this could bring to the lives of millions would change the email world forever- like gmail did decades ago (and ceased to continue doing).
