A webmail client for IMAP which uses the Web Server app to provide a browser-based, multi-lingual e-mail user interface. The app is powered by Roundcube. Features include MIME support, address book, folder manipulation, message searching and spell checking.
The ClearOS Webmail packaging also combines two stable and popular plugins - Sieve (managing user filters) and Global Address Book. The app includes the ability to backup, store offsite and restore Roundcube's configuration settings, address book data and user filters that have been created with the Sieve plugin.
By purchasing this app in the Marketplace, you help support eGloo developers maintain this app and build new ones. In addition, US $5 of every app purchase will be given to the Roundcube developers to help support their efforts in providing a simple and easy-to-use Webmail client for use on premise or in a hosted cloud environment.
There is only one version ($25/yr) in the Marketplace at the current time.
Two versions of the ClearOS Webmail app are available - Basic (command line installation) and Standard (Marketplace installation).
