[opensource-dev] Option to send notices to email even when online

I think a rephrased jira might be in place, I don't care if it goes to email
or some other solution is made.

*As a user I would like to have easier, more robust, access to all group
notices of the groups I'm in.
*Solutions:
1) have a option to always send them to email, even when online. (easiest)

2) provide a menu in the viewer that lists all the notices from all my
groups, being able to sort them by group, date/time or notice creator.
(better user experience)

This reminds me of something else I would like

*As a user I would like the group notices that are send to my email to
contain all Information that it does in the client.*

Right now the avatar sending the message is not included in the email, and
when there is a attachment it just says there is a attachment.

I would like to see the avatar name be included, and the attachments.
If the attachment is:

   - a landmark, it could be converted to a slurl, or map. url.
   - a image, include the full image, or if that is a permission problem,
   use the search version of the image/texture, like this:
   http://secondlife.com/app/image/7d9c36d7-dd00-5ee7-eed6-3249d2c693a5/1
   - a notecard, include the text, surls and images.
   - If it is a object, sound, animation, something else, say what kind of
   asset it is and it's name.
