they only way to get the karma system into the mails I could currently imagine 
is to enhance the signature with a links like


with login on the website. So if the mail is realy very good or bad you will 
click on this link, log in and give karma points. This is a little bit 
inconvinient, so I guess it would realy only be used for the "extreme" cases 
and otherwise ignored. Also I guess some members of this list will argue 
againt cluttering the signature :)
