Hi Hiroyuki and Team,
this is what I noticed also for a long time. Since years I cannot find the smallest imperfection in Sylpheed. Compact code, very fast and virtually bug-free (the appearance for daily use).

But the address book is very basic. It were great if I could move addresses between folders, add http's to the contacts and maybe even save jpgs to the addresses. A kind of pulldown menu in the compose window were really a great option. Or even a defined interface to fork off a separate addressbook project? Especially business-oriented users would really go for this.

I am sure there is a couple ideas more, just some thoughts..

I don't mean the autocomplete matching on the entries of the addressing book but I mean the one based on harvesting of the addresses found on the emails of the folder(s).
