Snappymail - Rainloop Fork
I haven't created a topic in App Wishlist yet before knowing more: Has anybody tried "Snappymail", a fork of Rainloop?
Simple, modern, lightweight & fast web-based email client.
Booting with 200 KB download (using Brotli) and a 92% mobile performance grade by Lighthouse.
This is a fork of the much appreciated RainLoop, but with massive changes to be compatible with (mobile) browsers in 2020.

Great find, we need a more modern webmail.
The drastically upgraded & secured fork of RainLoop Webmail Community edition.
We thank the RainLoop Team for making a great PHP 5 product that was good in the past.
Up to date system requirements, snappy performance, simple installation and upgrade, no database required - all these make SnappyMail a good choice.

Demo is definitely Snappy! Nice to know.

It amazes me how bad and lacking in features all existing options are
It seems there is some movement in the upstream project. It's become rebranded as "RainLoop Webmail (Legacy edition)" and distributed as MIT. I haven't found any more information on why it's legacy. See https://www.rainloop.net/try-now/ and https://www.rainloop.net/licensing/
@girish There‘s also movement in the repository (mostly license stuff as far as I can see): https://github.com/RainLoop/rainloop-webmail
@girish SnappyMail has followed suit too
Interesting, someone created a pull request removing a bunch of stuff about different versions and turning on all pro features
and then it looks like all that happened as part of relicensing to MIT
I'm no coder but looks like all the references to other versions have been removed and pro features enabled.
@jdaviescoates right, but it also got rebranded as "legacy".
@girish which I guess suggests perhaps a newer rewrite is coming, or something
I guess we'll see...
