    Default Comments and wishes for web interface

    At first - I think that Zimbra is very interesting piece of software. Currently I'm evaluating it, in the same time I'm learning linux, postfix, spamassassin etc. so it it great experience for me. Already I have one production box as mail gateway and I plan to use it throughout the company. I have some comments/wishes to the Zimbra web interface for next releases:

    1. I'm missing possibility to quickly navigate through messages. Imagine there are thousands of messages in folder and all I can use are left and right arrows. It would be great if there are more navigation controls, for example pages (1,2,3,4,5...10), or dates (today, yesterday, ...) or maybe there should be possibility to see more messages per page than 100. I know that there is the search option, but I think it could be even better.

    2. I like to see messages' complete received/sent date and time. In Zimbra I can see it on today's messages, but on older messages I see only the date, no time. And date is in the IV 12 format, is there a way to change it to european 12.4.2006 format? I really don't like current format.

    3. In the user options, there is possibility to set "Group mail by". There should be another option "Reading pane". When grouping is set by message, here will be set if reading pane is on/off by default.

    Sorry if I missed some already existing features that address my comments. Keep up the good work!

    1) Search. Take a look at the search builder. You can build all kinds of custom searches if you'd like.

    2) You can hover over the date to get the full time. In general if a message is from last week you don't always care if it came in at 9am or 9:14am or 1pm. It was from last week. You can change the date formats based on your browser locale. If you set it to a UK locale you'll get UK date formats.

    3) That persistent setting is on our list. It should be in bugzilla already.

    1. OK, will try to explore search builder. But maybe it should be possible to see more than 100 messages per page.

    2. Just looked around the forum and found some topics concerning languages. So it seems that I am the only Czech using Zimbra, so it will be probably me who will make the Czech translation to be able to see appropriate date/time formats. My browser is set to Czech, but date/time formats are not Czech certainly. But still I think that complete date/time should be seen in older messages, just like in Outlook is.

    3. OK.
