My list would look pretty much the same, except for these. A lot of
people want shared mailboxes and besides administrator configuring
them manually ACL is the only possibility. Clients don't currently
have much support for it, but it doesn't really need support from
normal clients. Just having some special "ACL (web)client" is enough.
I hoped to have implemented ACL for my server this summer, but looks
like it didn't happen.
I think quota is already pretty widely supported by clients, although
in very limited form. If people have quota, they really want to know
how much they have left (when they've reached the limit once..).
Quota root is a pretty weird concept though and I don't think clients
handle multiple ones well. Maybe QUOTA2 extension could do a better
job with those.
