E-mail junk folder, plans to change?


#1

Hello,

Are there plans to change the way spam filter works on dreamhost? Will it be possible to use another webmail without losing the junk filter option?

I know that there is an open suggestion and i already votted on it, but i don’t thing that this i going to change soon :frowning:

You can use RoundCube while retaining junk filter control. I’ve done this:

  1. Rename webmail from webmail.mydomain.com to wmail.mydomain.com
  2. Wait a day or so for DNS to clear
  3. Set up a fully hosted subdomain of webmail.mydomain.com
  4. Install RoundCube

Sorry, but i didn’t understood exactly what you told me.

Do you mean that roundcube can access the junk folder or that i can control the spam using roundcube?

Thanks for the answer.

RoundCube’s a much nicer webmail client, but it can’t look at DreamHost’s spam folder, or change the settings. That’s why I recommend that you keep SquirrelMail under a different URL for spam control purposes. It’s a bit of a hassle, but if you really hate SquirrelMail for your day to day webmail, use Webmail for that.

Well, I have installed my own copy of squirrelmail. I really enjoy it now that i have coded some stuff to it and installed a bunch of plugins.

But i still can’t access the junk mail folder :frowning:

I would really enjoy if dreamhost change this. As far as i know it’s not hard.

I do notice that Junk Mail has an interesting link:
https://webmail.mydomain.com/plugins/amavisnewsql/quarantine.php

Is that workable in your own SquirrelMail install?

I guess not.

This plugin is avaible here http://squirrelmail.org/plugin_download.php?id=224&rev=1198

It works like this, all the users preferences are stored in a db and if a message is suspicious it is also putted in quarantine on db (that’s why we can’t access this from another webmails). But i guess dreamhost won’t give me access to their database in order to my plugin connect there.
