It would be a god-send!!!

Out of Office and forwarding - User control
« on: January 25, 2013, 09:14:19 AM »

My web host uses roundcube, and although it's pretty good, the lack of control that account holders have over their account is causing me a lot of work.

The functionality is there to set out of office replies & configure forwarding, but you can only do it from the backend.

I can't imagine that it would be a huge amount of work to just add a few fields to the preferences page so that the mail account holders can do this themselves, so here's a request to please, please, PLEASE add the functionality to the front end as well as the back end...

When I wondered whether you'd implemented it & my host was just using an old version I had a search of your forums & saw a fair few people asking how account holders set out-of-office, but the reply is always that you can only do it from the backend, and only if a plugin has been installed.

I'm not the only one that would be a very happy bunny if you tweaked the front-end a little...

Many thanks,

There are at least two different plugins that offer this function, using the standard sendmail-type vacation function on the IMAP server. I've had one implemented since v.0.6 or so.
