I use Thunderbird for emails and I found it simpler to manage it that
way but maybe the work flow has its merits for other MUAs.

Sorry for the inconveniences.

I have worked on i18n too in the past. Nobody questions the importance
of translations in general but the target group for DLAs are system
administrators who will most likely be comfortable with reading an
advisory in English. As long as we have so many untranslated strings in
desktop applications, games or documentation, something the casual user
would use, it feels like the time could be spent elsewhere.
