It would be good if hMailServer provided user feedback whilst the backup is underway

Backup Progress

Post by Andrew583 » 2015-05-01 08:10

When initiating backup by clicking the start button, the backup goes off and does its thing. However the Start button remains enabled and there is no on-screen status of progress. The only way to see what has happened is to review the log files.

It would be good if hMailServer provided user feedback whilst the backup is underway - perhaps this could be handled via a popup modal dialog which incorporated a cancel button?

+1 from me as well

as a work around I use Baretail to watch the log file live
Just 'cause I link to a page and say little else doesn't mean I am not being nice.

If this was the only problem of the backup I was happy. But I'll vote yes. If this would be improved the other problems would have possibly been also touched. Many conjunctives, maybe wrong, but you'll know what I mean ;)
