Roundcube - Hmail Autoresponder - populates hmailserver but

Post by entropicsinkhole » 2012-05-16 19:14

Hmailserver 5.4 b1931
Roundcube 0.7.2 w/ latest hmail_autoresponder plugin

So, I'm not sure where the problem happens, hmailserver or roundcube, so I'm throwing it out here...

When I go to use Roundcube's hmail autoresponder, the autoreply works but the expiry date does not. I have confirmed that the information entered in the webmail's interface shows up on hmailserver too -- the 'enable' boxes for both the actual responder and the autoexpiry are checked off and the expiry dates match. SOOOO.... the information obviously makes it to hmailserver fine, but for some reason it ignores the expiry date.

If I go into hmailserver directly and create an autoresponder, with an expiry date, it works fine. It also worked fine when we used Squirrelmail as our webmail client, using the hmail autoresponder plugin. So obviously something specific with roundcube causes the problem, but at the same time if the information makes it to hmailserver successfully, why isn't it working?

Any suggestions are welcome, thanks!

Plugin for SquirrelMail is written in COM. It uses APIs provided by application. Plugin for roundcube accesses database directly. Third party should never mess with application database directly. You lose application support, if you do custom write in database without approval from devs.

Fair enough.

So, how hard would it be to get dev approval, if I was to find someone who could make a 'proper' plugin?

If plugin uses COM, you won't need any approvals. It would be standard supported application use.

If you want to understand why roundcube version is failing, contact myroundcube devs.
