Re: EventHandlers.vbs does not load on reboot

Thanks for testing Søren, really helpful and much appreciated! So since the script is evaluated every time from the top when an event occurs there is really absolutely no point in trying to define global stuff (as Martin mentioned in the topic linked above). I also checked how long creating the "hMa...

Re: EventHandlers.vbs does not load on reboot

Just hit the same issue. I also tried to do Dim obApp Set obApp = CreateObject("hMailServer.Application") Call obApp.Authenticate(user, pass) globally during startup of the script. While moving those lines into the function body of an event sounds reasonable and certainly will solve the problem I ha...

Re: Login aliases for accounts (improved compatibility with Android devices)

Thanks for responses, both very helpful. Now that I know that the the discussed approach won't break anything badly, I'm confident to use it in production. I'll additionally set-up routes as mentioned by mattg when I get to it (right know I disabled authentication for "local to local" but I assume t...

Re: On-Demand IMAP of External Accounts with IDLE/PUSH

I have a little bit different use case for such a feature: My e-mail provider offers POP3 (free of charge) and IMAP (charged). To get IMAP for free I set-up hMailServer a long time ago with my providers mail as external account pulled via POP3 (works perfectly with one downside: new mail is not imme...

Re: Login aliases for accounts (improved compatibility with Android devices)

Hi jimimaseye, thanks for your useful and detailed answer! In fact I implemented this exact workaround for my problem, but was of the impression it was kind of hacky? I assume this is not really how hMailServer is supposed to be set-up... aren't there any unwanted side effects? One (minor) issue I a...

Re: Login aliases for accounts (improved compatibility with Android devices)

What I found during search was a possibility to allow a user sending mail for an arbitrary account (yet the user needed to be authorized with a correct account name in the first place). What I'm talking about is that I would have to use an incorrect account name to connect to hMailServer - and this ...

Login aliases for accounts (improved compatibility with Android devices)

Hi all, the default Android mail app assumes that "account name" = "login name for incoming mail server" = "mail address for outgoing mail" (see https://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=170490). This is however not true in some cases and a serious limitation, that could be easily overcome ...
