Discussion on SmartMail - Web Mail Client for your Smartphone

37 comments found.

Ok… my fault… probably a “S” for “s”... from an ipad… anyway, I can see the demo both on ipad and desktop, it’s a nice work, congrats for that, but I’m wondering what’s the interest regarding the native webmail ?

May be it’s a stupid question but I would be gratefull if you can enlighten me :)

Cheers,

Hi,

I’ve developed smartmail cause my smartphone at that time was not really able to handle my Mailbox not well, caused by the amount of mails in it and caused by my connection (GPRS) or caused by Samsung S5230 ’s mailclient

With the help of smartmail I was able to handle all of my mails vie the smartphones browser without any problems

Recently I’ve got a Samsung Galaxy S and used smartmail as well, cause the integrated mailclient (Samsung) was’nt working that good. But now I’m using Android’s K-9 Mailer and don’t need to use Smartmail on Galaxy S any longer.

SHORT : Smartmail can be used if you have a lousy mailclient on your mobile device and/or your mobile connection isn’t that good

I hope I’ve enlightened you :)

best wishes

Hey,

I would like to know if this supports more than one email address at the same time because i have a couple i would like to monitor and they are all created in cpanel on the same server. Thanks you for your time.

Hi,

thx for purchasing smartmail :)

Smartmail only supports access to one emailbox at one time

you could use different devices or sessions to access more than one mailbox at the same time

The script doesn’t seem to work with this logon info:

http://go.wustl.edu/setup/Pages/Thunderbird.aspx

Is there a fix?

hi,

are you able to login with your username and your password?

messages will be sent through the server where SmartMail is installed

With this entry:

$server = “pod51004.outlook.com”; $port = 993; $user = “USERNAME@go.wustl.edu”; $pass = “PASSWORD”; $folder = “INBOX”;

The error is returned: Connection failed to pod51004.outlook.com,993: Connection timed out

Hi,

I’m unable to to establish an IMAP connection with the data you delivered – neither with a telnet connection

telnet pod51004.outlook.com 993
unable to post any IMAP commands (such as A01 LOGIN )

did you run the servercheck.php successfully before purchasing SM?

The servercheck does not work either. Do you have any idea why this does not work or what can be done to resolve this issue?

hi,

what’s the failure message?

did you run the servercheck anytime successfully (i.e. before purchasing)?

maybe your webhoster doesn’t allow you to access Mailservers from your Webserver?

hope this helps

Hi i am wondering how to change the theme from blue to black, Thanks

* EDIT

Never Mind i figured it out! Thanks for the great product! :D

OK another problem, Your demo works fine, but on my site, it comes out super small. very zoomed out and i cant zoom in enough to make text readable. tested on android (Casio Commando), Windows Phone 7, iPod touch, and iPhone4S. how to fix this?

Click here to test.

Thanks, JL Griffin

did you remove the added line again?

this line should do the job

empty your cache or try to rename the folder

still didnt work. idk what is going on. would you like to login via ftp and take a look? ill message you the details. just let me know when you do it so i know who is accessing the server.

hi, its very interesting your app, but my question is do you have any email client for implement to a website, thanks

thank ya :)

I’ve programmed such a Webmailclient more than 8 years ago – but today there’re a lot of really good and free Webmail-Clients out there (SquirrelMail, RoundCube) and I think there’s no need for a new one :)

thx again

Hi dmwd…

first of all you should buy this item,

befor buying you could test the IMAP -functionality with the use of the servercheck.php

love it ..is there a version like one for desktop? for pc or mac like email page / when customers visit on iphone or smart phone it sends them to the iphone version

hi,

sorry for the delay :)

you could use any desktop webmail client and add a mobile detector – if a mobile device is accessing the desktop version your could redirect the user automatically to the mobile version

Any thoughts on how to enable notifications (number of new emails, etc). Pushover service could be one solution.

I am considering integrating Pushover API in to the code – would you be interested in including that modification in a future update if I made it configurable?

hi alien,

nice idea, and if you’re ready and if it’s okay I’d add the new functions with credits to you

thx
mac

I was wondering if there is a way to make it so if you send an email that it shows in in the SENT items imap folder. When a mail is sent, currently it uses the server email address in the Return-Path: and the correct email in the From: header, but it does not store the sent email in the IMAP folder, which is a bit of a pain, as you cannot find the sent email later when using a different client.

Do you know any solution for this?

Hi,

the sent items was an issue I was thinking about whil programming SmartMail and it should work (I’ve just tested it out on courier)

an (unread) copy of the mail will be stored in the INBOX.Sent folder

maybe your mailsever name the folder with another name, please open the folders with Smartmail and take a look how the sent folder is called.

this folder has to be used in the smartmail.class.php

var $sentfolder = "INBOX.Sent";
after the INBOX.

hope this helps

Connection failure.Can not authenticate to IMAP server: Login failed.

Demo not working

hi,

you’re right – I’ve deactivated the smartmail email account a while ago because it was used for spamming issues

I removed the demo link until I’ve figured out a solution

Can I attach a file to a mail ?

hi,

it’s not implemented in the current version of SmartMail
