1) Default identity. My IMAP account is fed by a fetchmail daemon. I don't want to reply or compose a new message with this account but use an identity. It is too easy to forget to select the identity each time I send a new email. A default identity would be the perfect solution.

2) Correct identity on "quick reply". The "quick reply" uses the default email address, not the identity associated with the TO or CC header. The "full reply" works as expected.

3) Keyboard shortcuts that work on Mac OS X. Mac users don't have a SUPPR key for instance, and use the BACKSPACE key instead.

4) Option to search in all directories, not just the current one.

5) Plain text composing option for each message, and default setting (plain text or rich text) configurable.

6) Auto BCC.

We're considering adding this in future versions indeed.

That's definitely a bug, and I've asked the developers to look into this.

As far as we can tell, you should be able to use the shortcuts with cmd key. Doesn't that work for you?

Unfortunately, searching in current folder only is IMAP limitation. The only way to bypass it is to run search in every folder and merge search results, which most likely is going to be very slow.

According to product management, those features might be really confusing for many users. Thus we don't plan to implement those in the near future.

The CTRL key works, but there is no DELETE key on a mac keyboard (to delete a message).

I know the search is performed via IMAP, but why not sending multiple IMAP search commands on all folders (if the option is checked in the advanced search form)? There is a Solr plugin for Dovecot, if used, it would not be that slow.

Maybe it would then be possible to extend the "Save replied messages to the current folder" option to new sent messages and not only to replies?

On mac keyboard we have here, there is Delete key yet it doesn't work that way. Still, deleting messages using toolbar controls remains the primary way of doing that, we don't plan on adding alternative shortcuts.

It's possible to get search results that way, the problem is about merging those in a single list, and especially handling that list - for example, deleting mails listed there will take multiple separate IMAP requests compared to doing that for search results in a single folder.

Maybe, but it raises another question - are we removing Sent folder in that case, as looks like it won't be used at all? And at the moment, we're not ready to determine whether it's going to be feasible.

On my last request, glad to have received a fast reply in the uservoice system saying we will have tasks/to do list in Webmail pro next year !! :)

One more feature request.

Understand ICS files (event invitations) and let users invite other users to events/meetings.

If you agree, pls vote here: http://afterlogic.uservoice.com/forums/106725-ideas-for-afterlogic-products/suggestions/6460480-understand-ics-and-invitations-webmail-pro

Hi, Alex

I do consider aurora for the future, but for now, due to some internal issues, we use another software for the more advanced groupware.

I still think Webmail pro could just let users invite people to meetings and auto add events received via ICS file, because IMHO its not just a business feature and other webmails have it. You could leave more advanced features like free/busy to Aurora :)

Anyways, cant complain, you guys have been great at accepting feature requests and always adding features. Afterlogic imho is the most complete webmail solution of its kind, with identities, external account support, so much, but I keep my request on this one also.

Thank you.

I came back to say that, I was testing and found I can save the ICS and then import it, but most users wouldnt know how and that they can to do that unless instructed (have to click on down arrow in calendar to import ICS). So maybe wouldnt hurt to automate it or some warning when theres an ICS "you can save this file and import into calendar", would be enough :))

If that is done, IMHO all that would be missing is to let the poor souls be able to invite people to meetings :) Pls consider.

Thanks!!

I have some suggestions for the "file storage" part:

- selection of different views (list, details, thumbs, ....)
- moving files or folders
- downloading whole folders
- zip feature
- list all shared files or folders (easier to manage)
- simple text editor
- upload folders
- right click menu

OK I think this is overkill, but it would be great if some of these points would make it into a future release.

Thanks!

Thank you, Alex/Afterlogic!

All that is missing IMHO now would be to let users send invitations for events to other email addresses, imho, thats a neat feature even for mortal users that dont use aurora or advanced sharing, something of the day to day that imho could be in in webmail pro also.

Hello,

I haven't read all the suggestions, maybe someone had already asked it, but would you think, that it would be possible to add the ability to synchronize address book with a CardDav Server ?

Thank you for your work, and for your wonderful service.

Franck

Hi Franck,

I believe that suggestion was there indeed, but currently we can only support built-in DAV server, mainly because we work with it on database and API level, not just DAV protocol. Handling contacts via DAV protocol introduces performance issues - for example, if you need to search through contacts, you'll need to parse each and every record. If we find a reliable way to work around that problem, we can definitely add support for external DAV servers.

Dear Afterlogic Team,
In my former Webmail i was able to put a special message to the Logon Screen, just to inform the members about some Changes, etc..

Is it possible to add some kind of Message to the Logon Screen in the Future?
It should be added and changeable in the Adminpanel...

Thank you very much!

Currently, it can only be done by modifying the template file templates/views/Login/LoginViewModel.html. Aside from few special placeholders, it's just HTML so you should be able to add custom text there. Upon making changes there, it's important to purge anything under data/cache/ directory.

I don't think we'll be adding this in AdminPanel as configuration option, but most probably, this can be achieved by a plugin. Good thing about plugins is that, unlike skins and templates, they're not affected by upgrades. I'll check with the developers if implementing such plugin is actually possible.

WebMail Pro already has support of filters implemented. They rely on Sieve functionality of mail server software, so specific mailserver needs to support that. Also, ManageSieve service must run on the system to let you use this functionality. A while back, I've posted a detailed walkthrough of this matter at this forum page.

Hi,

Just to mention it: IMAP ACL support? :-)

I'm fine with it anyway, just bought a 100 users licence to support you guys.

A Login Activity Feature which records the locations and IP addresses of each sign-in of the account would be really great ?

Have you ever thought of that?
