Pretty much, yeah. It will support both mail and file storage,
though you'll have to dedicate a reasonable amount of disk space
to it! It's still very much work in progress at the moment -
but being able to talk to IMAP and SMTP backends is pretty
important of course.
You would be using a regular mail client rather than webmail,
at least in the first instance. I'm not going to try and
squash the entire FastMail server infrastructure into this
