small project for a designer to start with!

I've been horribly remiss about posting design opportunities, but this started to annoy me tonight while I was working on something else, so I opened a bug for it:

Bug 4304: email posting setting should get some updates

This is the "Email Posting" setting on the Mobile tab of Account Settings, and it's horribly dated-looking. If anybody wants to try your hand at a new version, have at it! Even just a rough mockup would be awesome. Some suggestions are in the bug, but generally I'd like to streamline the layout, eliminate all the duplicated text, and fix the horrible alignment glitches produced by the checkboxes, as well as using some AJAXy goodness to only show one additional (non-used) entry box at a time.

So I'm a little confused by the page (have never posted by email). By going through the FAQ, my understanding of the process is:

1) Create a PIN for email posting
2) Add email addresses you are allowed to post from
(does checking "email summary" send the email summary just once? And "send errors" means it will send an email any time you post via email and there are errors?)
3) You can now post to your journal using [[username]]+PIN@post.dreamwidth.org from any of the added emails

Cool, thanks! Will try to get a mockup out in the next few days.
