I am looking at using Zimbra in conjunction with an existing substantial web based PHP project.

I understand that I can transfer emails into my other system by dragging and dropping them onto a Zimlet which is one half of the story.

What I don't understand is how I can view the emails stored in that way. I could incorporate the ability to display an email into my other application, but that seems somewhat overkill when the idea is to integrate with Zimbra which should be able to display/reply/forward them. I would like to be able to click on a link in my other application which would result in Zimbra opening the email.

So is this possible with a Zimlet or Zimbra?
