Change Squirrel mail? Why?
If it aint broke don't fix it
- and as far as I'm concerned it aint broke

As a first time user (had to start using it to find out why all my eBay mail had disappeared only to discover it's all marked as spam), I have to say "It is broke!" - froze on me 3 times in 5 minutes AND it's awful, get rid!  If it wasn't for this spam issue I wouldn't go anywhere near it.

Re: SquirrelMail : Do you dig it?

I don't think it likes massive mailboxes - thousands of items...
But I don't have a use for massive mailboxes.  Smiley

Re: SquirrelMail : Do you dig it?

Ooohhh.
I'm a fan of SM and always will be. HOWEVER...
I just checked out RoundCube, and I seem to be stroking my monitor every time it's on the screen. I don't use PN mail as I have my own mail server and domain, but that's damn nice. I may even move our users onto it after some testing.

Re: SquirrelMail : Do you dig it?

Mail Forwarding:  It seems that there is no mail forwarding facility (only redirection via "manage your mail").
It's a conspicuously missing feature which some well known web-mail competitors have as part of their standard service.
Squirrel Mail otherwise seems like a satisfactory web-mail solution for browser based plus-net mailbox access.

Re: SquirrelMail : Do you dig it?

SquirrelMail is an email client not a mail server. If it had mail forwarding rules set up it could only action the rules when you logged in to the relevant mailbox via SquirrelMail which would be pretty useless.
I'm afraid you are asking for something which is impossible!

Re: SquirrelMail : Do you dig it?

Isn't there a "reading pane" so that I can read my messages without opening them up individually?
Also, the "next" button takes me to older messages and the "previous" option takes me to newer messages. What's all that about?
I don't care much for SquirrelMail...

The blog IronPort & the Future of the Email Platform may offer hope to you in this case. As stated in the blog plans are well advanced for a trial in the new year which could result in SquirrelMail being replaced with Roundcube. Quoting from the blog:
Quote from: Bob
Over recent weeks we’ve been trialling Roundcube with members of staff and a small number of closed BETA trialists. Feedback so far has been really good so we’re aiming to launch a fully-fledged BETA trial early next year. As soon as we have more detail about this it”ll be published right here on Community so watch this space!

Forgive my apparent naivety, but how comes googlemail & windows live can be set to forward mail from their web email client?...

Re: SquirrelMail : Do you dig it?

Because you are telling the server to do the forwarding - the actual forwarding occurs when the mail is received, not when you fire up the google (etc) mail client.

Re: SquirrelMail : Do you dig it?

Welcome Bridget and I am sure that you will be able to send many e-mails when you are on broadband. Hope everything goes well with the set up.

Re: SquirrelMail : Do you dig it?

With regards to Roundcube, it seems as if people there is a general approval of it. However, I am not one of them and hope that when it does come online for general use it will do so with the amendments asked for in the trial.
Squirrelmail, although not as aesthetically pleasing, is much more user-friendly than RC IMO.

Re: SquirrelMail : Do you dig it?

When I log into our company webmail I am offered a choice of  Squirrelmail, Roundcube and Horde.
What would the issues be with Plusnet offering a similar choice for webmail?
