Designing a User Interface for the Innovative E-mail Client Framework

Stephanie Balzer and Joseph N. Ruskiewicz


Email Clients have become a crucial application, both in business and for personal use. The term information overload refers to the time consuming issue of keeping up with large amounts of incoming and stored email. Users face this problem on a daily basis and therefore benefit from an email client that allows them to efficiently search, display and store their email. The goal of this thesis is to build a graphical user interface for the innovative email client developed in a previous master thesis. It also explores the possibilities of designing a user interface outside of the business rules that apply for commercial solutions.
