Replace SquirrelMail with RainLoop

christo shared this idea 1 month ago
Not Planned

As a cPanel user and System Administrator, I would like to see RainLoop offered as a web mail alternative because the removal of SquirrelMail would leave a void for a minimalist/low resource/no-database required webmail client. Filling this niche would help with troubleshooting as an admin as SquirrelMail is often the go-to to simply see mail and narrow the scope of possible issues. As a user, an application like RainLoop would fill the niche for a nice and fast webmail client for people who don't depend on the webmail client exclusively, and just need something to quickly check mail without much overhead.


--------------------------------------------------------------------


In light of the news about removing SquirrelMail, I think a minimalist replacement would be nice - something without a database like http://www.rainloop.net/ .

We have some concerns about the history of this application and aren't willing to consider adding RainLoop at this time. If that changes, however, I'll definitely be back to let everyone know! As always, if you have questions feel free to reach out directly.
