Simple forward (not rule based)

Post by martin » 2005-09-20 15:45

Simple forward of email messages that doesn't require you to set up a rule. Every account should have a "Forward messages to" textbox where you can enter an address where are messages should be forwarded.

Might be nice for users that doesn't know how to set up a rule.

or host that need to use Helm and too lazy to setup the rule ;)

i don't think it's nessceary but since Helm havn't support it maybe you can help speed up the process. do you know how many control panel support your email server? hmail is great for the price. it will be whole lot better if you can become a default windows email servers for windows host. man, you will kill with your free email software. whatever happened to your plan to sell support for hmail? if you keep the price of hmail under $200. i'll buy a copy. :)

i've MailEnable Pro on my other server and its IMAP doesn't work as well as hmail :( but it does have a nice asp based web email interface.

i think if hmail is going to commerical, you going need a support team, a better webmail interface than current squerillmail. it's a good product i will like to see it take off for windows web hosting.

I'm a bit busy with other things. I'm not going to do that before I really have time for it. It's not a good idéa to sell support unless you really have the time to do it properly.. :)

Well, it's not like you're forced to use SquirrelMail. There are other more "nice looking" webmail systems available at a low cost..

I use this quite alot. I'll get a call from a Director saying that he's gone on holiday YESTERDAY. Can I set a forwarding on his emails.

A nice GUI option with a Textbox to enter the Forwarding Addr. + a Tick box to allow for deletion of email after forwarding would look lovely.

They looked nice. I'm thinking of wasting $29 for the XP BlueSky. :)

This feature would be really great if it allowed you to forwared mail for an account to multiple addresses instead of just one! Maybe through a comma separated list or something.

Especially important to give control to the end users! If this feature would be available in PHPAdmin and/or SquirrelMail than they do not have to ask the web admin if he/she would apply a rule... (AND end users have to contact the web admin AGAIN if they want to end the rule...). Would save a lot of hassle for the web admin.

Well here's the problem, whilst most of the lovely people here are new adopters/cutting edge/savy most of the windows users are not. hence the question that just wont go away about the included webmail :)

Yeah I know Im being a pain ...

Thanks

I would also find this useful.

At the moment I often find myself setting up rules "where message size is greater than zero", to forward someones email on to multiple other users and what not.
