Telegram is a great messenger, but it can also be a great Email service. So without further introductions, let's start.
Mail app can be separated or it can simply be integrated inside the Telegram messenger app. The main address itself is a unique one, merged to each phone number.
Like any other mail service, it needs a login form, a mail app, and some shiny features.
There are two ways to login by the standalone app:
You can also access mails by Telegram Messenger itself as an integrated part of it. All you need to enter is your 2FA password in this form.
So for the inbox UI, they are almost the same on both standalone Telegram Mail (Let's call it Tmail) app and integrated Mail inside the Telegram messenger. Mails settings are directly accessible from the standalone app's Settings button and also it's possible to configure its settings from the Mails option inside Telegram messenger's settings.
Telegram folders can be used to separate each part of the mail feature easily. So you can also create any new folders with your desire in the settings or by holding the Mails tab. You can also hide the Mail tab and access to mails only by the settings option.
So that's it. I hope you enjoy this mockup and suggestion.

Please confirm access via Telegram
Then for already users, there could be a label where you enter the settings named T-mail, where you enter a new interface, almost like a 'sub-app'.
Mail is also an insecure way of communicating, so it's better to not add email service features to Telegram.
The last thing I want is to somehow have to tie even more stuff to a phone number?
Granted, the UI & mockups are really REALLY nice, but if I was a developer I'd just take the open source Telegram client app for it's UI, and build a generic IMAP/POP/JMAP client on top of that?
No need for such extreme feature creep...
