  Mahogany Wood
The valuable hardwood called mahogany is obtained from many members of the family; in America and Europe it is imported for cabinet making and similar uses.
According to tradition it was first introduced to England from the West Indies when Sir Walter Raleigh had a mahogany table made for Queen Elizabeth I; the popularity of the wood increased steadily in the 18th cent.
The different mahoganies vary in color from golden to deep red brown; most are close-grained and resistant to termites.

  Mahogany
Mahogany is becoming increasingly rare, and is already extinct in parts of its original range.
Mahogany is fine to medium texture, with uniform to interlocking grain, ranging from straight to wavy or curly.
Uses: Mahogany is regarded by many as the world's premier wood for fine cabinetry, high-class furniture, trimming fine boats, pianos and other musical instruments, sculpture, joinery, turnery, figured and decorative veneer, interior trim, and carving.

 Mahogany and CITES
Big-leafed mahogany matters not only to U.S. consumers with expensive taste in furniture, but also to mahogany-producing areas (range states) where the resource is critical to local economies yet increasingly threatened by intensive and illegal harvest that is driven, in part, by U.S. demand.
A concerted, long-lasting commitment by range states to mahogany conservation is central to preventing the demise of big-leafed mahogany and the displacement (or even disappearance) of local and international industries that depend on the resource.
Mahogany imported into the United States from Latin America in the form of minimally processed lumber is exempt from duties that may be imposed on imports of value-added commodities like plywood and furniture.

 Mahogany Mail
The official reason is that Mahogany is going to be the ideal mail client combining the best features from all the others with many of its own but this is probably not very convincing.
Mahogany runs under Unix (too many flavours to enumerate here) and Win32 (we would like to have a version for Mac OS X too) which is still not ideal but much better than 99% of the other email clients.
We don't and this is why not only Mahogany uses the standard formats and protocols wherever they exist but also provides means to import the data from other programs and, for the rare cases where we use our own formats, export them in another.
