Projects / oMail-Webmail


oMail-webmail is a Webmail solution for mail servers based on qmail and optionally vmailmgr or vpopmail. The mail is read directly from maildirs on the hard disk, which is much quicker than using protocols like POP3 or IMAP. Other features includes multiple language support (English, French, German, Japanese, Chinese, and many more), HTML and pictures inline display, folders, and address book support.

            Keep it real, keep it qmail.

            I've tried other ones, but to one who uses the One Real MTA (that being qmail) this is heaven. I read my mails on my desktop through nfs at my closet server who delivers the incoming messages straight into maildir. This way, I have one exact inbox at my cozy server and I can read my mail whichever way I want. (That being mutt and on the road, omail)

            My brother was so impressed, I gave him an account too!

            Sure as hell beats any one of those IMAP and POP and MySQL storage and whatnot.

            You rock.

            However, being modest, you forgot to mention that oMail beats the heck out of most of the other WebMail clients that are out there. Again, my complements.

            nope, sorry, it's not the goal of the project, and there are

            *plenty* of other software that works with pop or imap. For

            example IMP ( looks a bit like

            Any chance that you will be doing it with standerd pop and smtp ?

            Doh! Now I know why I was using NeoMail... because
            it did go via pop3 and that was all there was to
            it. The speed per'se wasn't an issue (I was only
            needing to provide a WWW interface via the
            firewall to the world for my board members etc who
            were travelling around the world).

            Rejoice for protocol-standards (assuming MS hasn't
            bludgeond them already).

            Oh well, my comments still stand though, it's a
            nice application you've developed.

            Now I have to return to trying to work how to make
            my WWW app work without Apache.
