Now that we've seen the value of federated mail in Notes 8.5, how about federated mail?
Here's one scenario; you may have others.
  • allow me to display my inbox federated with that from a team mail-in database; my team's customer service mail.
  • show me a visual marker of some sort to denote which mail item is from which database
  • if I reply or forwward a mail from the team database, append the signatire from that database
  • and set the principal and replyto fields properly, so that the recipient gets the picture and any reply they make goes to the team mail.
  • show me federated folders so that I can file the mail in the correct folder; warn me if I try to cross-file.
  • automatically federate the team mail database calendar while I have the mail federated.
Will this also solve the Admin Assistant/PA/Secretary issue too?

Yes please. My BlackBerry does a similar thing in how it can display chats, sms, personal mail all in the single mailbox with an icon indicating the source. Effectively a collection of all inboxes.

I frequently get requests for team mailboxes. The second question is "How can I get these messages to appear in my personal inbox?" No, subscriptions don't cut it.

If I live in Florida, can I vote for this one twice?

A composite application? Then you have them next to each other.
Or: use the RSS stream from the inbox and mashups
