What's coming in 4.5
Yes, I won't claim the web client is perfect, but basic also does not seem to be the right word for it.
When I went back to try the demo again it wasn't how I remembered it, so I think I was mis-remembering and confusing it with some other product/ suite I've demoed recently too (either that or the demo changed quite a lot in the intervening period, but I think more likely the former)
You can do searches and "store" these to easily rerun them later. Its similar to how the the Outlook fat client is doing it.
Ah, I see.
I haven't used Outlook anything since I started running Linux about 20 years ago!
I used to use Thunderbird with IMAP servers run by geeky friends (for free). But my friends never really got spam filtering in place (they had SpamAssassin installed, but it was never trained well enough - fair enough given they were offering a completely free service) and eventually spam drove me to Gmail (I was getting about 1000 a day!).
But I (and many many others) now expect to be able to very simply add labels to emails in order to easily organise them into virtual folders. Given the domination of Gmail it surprises me that more open source webmail projects don't try to more to clone more of some of Gmail's "basic" features. I guess it's just a matter of lack of resources in the open source world
Group-/sub- admin accounts remain high on my list and I certainly look forward to seeing that in 4.5. Overall, this is a really good list of features that is clearly being developed and prioritized with a lot of weight to community feedback, which I think deserves some major applause!
Roundcube got a facelift recently, check it out!
I have. Nice, but I can't live without virtual folders/ label based folders/ saved searches/ whatever you want to call them.
I note, however, that "Virtual folders (aka saved searches)" are one of their planned features, so hopefully they'll be available sooner rather than later!
There's a new Roundcube Plugin available for message labels:
This is plugin for roundcube to add labels like Google labels.
- manually and filter way add labels
- manually remove filter find labels
- multilabels support
- drag and drop to add label support
- remove label on one click on label in subject
- search all labels in all folder on one click (manual select folder search on filter search label)
- display label list on left panel under folder list*
Per-app backup format.
This didn't seem to make it into "4.5" aka 5.0 nor yet into 5.1.1 - hoping it's still on the roadmap?
Would love to be able to use rsync for e.g. Nextcloud and Surfer (where I'd like to upload many GBs of mostly PDFs) whilst continuing to use tgz for most other apps.
@Mallewax FTS is in our plans. The last we checked it required Java/Lucene and so we dropped it until we updated our base images. In 5.2 (released now but not available for existing installations), we have updated the base image. So, maybe we will relook into FTS for the next release.
