    Default Likes and wants :) [don't forget to vote for features in bugzilla]

    Let me start off by saying that it's a pleasure reading email again Zimbra is a little heavy for my family email, but heck, it kicks the pants off Squirrelmail (yeah, not hard to do, I know). I do have some comments though.

    Wants:
    • Keyboard shortcuts (ala gmail)

    • Tab navigation (I saw someone else comment on that too)

    • Mailbox refresh interval changable on a per user basis

    • Better anti-spam (it does pick the below up if installed, so not the end of the world)
      Vipuls Razor
      DCC
      Pyzor
      Blacklist accounts

    • gzip compression - I can't tell if this already happens or not

    • quicker access to filter (filter based on current email?)

    • When in the filter screen, I get annoyed when changing the condition type wipes out the text field containing the previous text (this is especially annoying in combination to another bug I've unreliably hit that changes my "header" condition to a "from" condition)

    • Ability to send email from other accounts (or aliases)

    • quota's larger than 2GB - which begs the question, what's the limit w/out quota? is it 2GB also?

    • PGP and/or S-MIME


    Likes:
    • Dragable email

    • Dragable folders (omg, I discovered this one entirely by mistake - maybe I should read the manual? heh)

    • The whole UI - it's sweet...can't wait to see what happens when external artists decide to start skinning it

    • URL preview (however, loading non-encrypted content on an encrypted page is kinda bad form )

    • mouseovers galore!


    Yeah, I know short list of likes...there's more, just not quite as intuitive. Good job guys, this is an awesome product!

    Oh yeah, and ditto on wanting my mouse scroll back! ;-P I know it's being worked on (or fixed).

    Hi Bill,

    Thank you for you post and feedback.

    Keyboard shortcuts + Tab Navigation

    Both hot items within Zimbra. As you can imagine, developers who are used to editor shortcuts, really want to have keyboard shortcuts in application. It is something we want to get into the product as soon as possible

    Mailbox refresh interval changable on a per user basis

    We have allowed the administrator to set the value for mailbox refresh on a per class of service (COS) basis. The rationale is that we wanted to give the administrator the flexibility to control (at least for the web client) the refresh interval. This is particularly useful in large installations where many thousands of users may be concurrently connected

    Better anti-spam

    We are looking at integrating with other solutions. There is a post Why Spamassassin that touches on why we went with spamassassin out the gate (I believe you are a contributor to the thread )

    Gzip compression

    I assume you mean for JavaScript files? We do infact aggregate, compress, and gzip the JavaScript. If you are building from source, you have to do a production deployment for this to happen - I believe the ant rule is prod-deploy (though I don't have the build.xml file handy right now)

    Filtering

    Completely agree with the need for quick access to filters. We have a UI spec for it, and need to implement it - so it is just a simple matter of programming We do have a number of bugs in the filter UI that we will fix as soon as we can - Apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused you.

    Ability to send email from other accounts (or aliases)

    Could you please elaborate a little more on what the requirement is?

    Quota's larger than 2GB

    There should be no architectural limitation of a max 2GB quota. I believe the current milestone build may have a limitation due to the quota being specified an int; however, that is a bug and my understanding is that it has been fixed. Unlimited means until you run out of disk.

    PGP and/or S-MIME

    This is a feature we have had some folks ask for and which is on our roadmap. No date as to when it will be available as of yet

    This feature should be available in the next milestone build. The admin can set the value to a minimum number of minutes, and the user can set it to an equal or larger value. Currently we have defaults of 2 and 5 minutes.

    I meant any data downloaded to the client so as to keep network bandwidth usage down. It sounds like you already do this, it's a little difficult for me to verify though (my issue, not yours)

    Oh no worries, I know this isn't GA yet Just reporting stuff as I see it in case nobodies noticed or thought of it.


    Ability to send email from other accounts (or aliases)

    Could you please elaborate a little more on what the requirement is?
    Say I have an account that I can login to as foo@bar.com, but can receive email to foo@bar.com and foobar@bar.com, I'd like to be able to send email using the aliases that are enabled for my account (administrator settable of course, I can see plenty of admins NOT wanting this). Does that help a little? I'm thinking something along the lines of a "From:" drop down with the default being the login (or account) name (btw, I discovered I could log in to the webmail account via aliases too!) allowing the user to select his alternate email aliases as the sender. In my personal case, I'd like to subscribe to mailing lists using an address of account-mailinglist@domain and reply using that so my actual _personal_ email account isn't posted all over the 'net. But I can see this being useful outside of my personal case though, else I wouldn't be asking for it.

    Quota's larger than 2GB

    There should be no architectural limitation of a max 2GB quota. I believe the current milestone build may have a limitation due to the quota being specified an int; however, that is a bug and my understanding is that it has been fixed. Unlimited means until you run out of disk.
    OK, that's what I figured unlimited was, but when there was a limit to the max quota, I started to wonder. Glad to hear that's a bug


    Thanks for the reply. Keep up the good work, this is a phenomenal product!

    PS. waiting patiently for a FreeBSD port ;-PPP

    Hmmm, I must have missed that, I'll go hunting again tonight when I get access to the admin UI again.

    Ok got it. Your right we offer aliases and the ability to login as your alias, but don't allow you to chose the FROM: header of outgoing email on a per message basis. I assume you did see the pref which allows you to set your reply-to address globally, not what your asking for but something you do get today. I'll put in a enhancement for this request.

    I would like to add my vote for this feature as well. This feature is nice for mailing lists as billm describes, I do the exact same thing. Also, I like having one email account that aggregates all my email from several domain. Then when replying or sending mail, I just choose which alias identity I want to use in the "From:" line. There are other ways to do this but aliases are quick and simple to use.
