JMAP : New Open e-mail specification


This was posted to Friendica by Hackernews.   So decided to share here as it looks interesting.   Taking the description directly as a quote from the JMAP website

JMAP is the developer-friendly, open API standard for modern mail clients and applications to manage email faster.

So essentially a nice new fast specification.  Hopefully something that can be developed further over time.  May be worth checking out for those who are interested.

If you are not sure what JSON ( JavaScript Object Notation  )is please, there is an explanation on the JSON Website. Tutorials can be found on the JSON section of the W3Schools website.

Looks like K-9 Mail  is already implementing support for this.

Hacker news can be found on Mastodon.  As with Friendica and others this is part of the Fediverse.

Please feel free to discuss further on
