View Full Version : Westhost Webmail suggestions

03-30-2007, 08:24 AM
I have a few suggestions for improving Westhost Webmail that were discussed on another thread (http://forums.westhost.com/showthread.php?t=9970):

1. Increase the timeout. It is currently set at 10 minutes, and because the default for Automatically check for new mail is set to every 10 minutes, it often logs the user out before it can check again. Worse, I've had a user lose an email she was composing because of the short timeout. How about a default timeout of 30 or 60 minutes? I have been using Uebimiau email with a 60 minute timeout for weeks without problem.

2. Enable the Sent Items folder so we can see emails we've sent. This is also a sort of data loss problem similar to above, because normally I expect to be able to retrieve emails messages I've sent.

3. Enable the Address Book. Although this does not prevent data loss as the previous suggestions do, it's a very convenient feature.

These changes would make Westhost Webmail more appropriate for our use than Uebimiau.
