As long as the mail application is scriptable, almost all of these items have been doable as speech recognitions commands for years in Mac OS 9 (we're talking at least seven years). I was able to login using a vocal phrase key, open and close applications, scroll windows and select items, get information and run menu items. It was a combination of the built-in AppleScript and Speakable Items features of Mac OS back in the day.

One thing I am curious about... does Vista require you to voice-train your computer BEFORE the system can recognize you properly or does it work out of the box with any Joe's accent and drawl?
