i wonder why people say that an office suite needs to have an email
client: is that only because Microsoft Office includes one?

having never been a user of Microsoft Office: what specifically are the
benefits of having an email client in the suite that are not currently
supported in LibreOffice by its various Send As Email / Mail Merge /
Address Book integration etc. features that are configurable to work
with a number of external mail clients such as Thunderbird, Evolution, etc.?

surely nobody actually wants to embed a mail client into a Writer
document as an OLE object?
