New webmail system in beta

UPDATE: This beta test has now closed (21/09/07), check out for the tool we were evaluating.

We have recently begun our final testing of a new webmail system. The new ‘atmail’ system is planned to replace the aging horde system. The new interface should be more intuitive, cleaner and ultimately easier to use.

At this time we are welcoming anyone interested to login to a test server and take a test drive. If you do test the system please let us know how you find the new interface. Your comments and suggestions are highly valued.

Please note that this is a test server. As a result capacity may be limited at certain times. If you fail to gain access drop us an email ( so we can help.

To access the new system first login at:

Next select ‘click here’ next to ‘external accounts’ and complete the relevant information. NOTE: To avoid email loss we strongly suggest you choose ‘IMAP” from the ‘More Options’.

The test server can be use to access any mail account, non mailboxes included. Feel free to test using any mailbox you like. Staff

  1. Hi,

    Any reason why you’re not switching to roundcube? It’s very similar to @mail and it’s OpenSource – definately worth a look!



  2. We’ve tried out Roundcube too – so far it doesn’t seem to be very stable, and also doesnt’ offer the more minimal versions which atmail does.

  3. Currently doesn’t seem to be working for me, just getting..

    DB Error: connect failed

    I did have a play with it the other day though, feel free to call me old fashioned, but I think I prefer Horde. The full Atmail interface appears to be cluttered and confusing. I didn’t have chance to try the other interfaces fully – I might like those better.

  4. Generally like the layout.
    Still appears to be no option for including a graphic in signature – this would be very useful to us.
    Haven’t explored thoroughly yet but I couldn’t find a way of automatically including a cc address in every sent email – we use this a lot in the Horde system.

  5. Looking good guys apart from the little bug with the “.” at log in (which im told will be sorted) the system looks good. Its a fresh new upto date look and seems to have some great features such as outlook sync.
    Also from a reseller point of view i will be far happier providing clients with this interface than i was with horde. Look forward to playing with it in more detail.

  6. Was looking forward to checking this out. Used to be a cubemail user before, never seen @mail, so curiosity got the better of me. unfortunately I received this message after logging in:

    Your software license has exceeded. (User License Exceeded for demo version. 30 users allowed, current 31 )

  7. Looks good, I’ve used roundcube (which I like) and obviously I’m using horde (which I do not like) but @mail looks very simple and intuitive, which for a lot of my clients is a necessity 😉
    Do you know how long the test phase will last before you go live, just that I’ll need to prepare to update my ‘owners manual” for my clients to include the new instructions.


  8. I would like to see a secure logon (have the little lock at the bottom of the browser) like gmail has, so that the logon and password are sent encrypted. Horde doesn’t seem to do this at present, is it sent in clear text?

  9. is this still going ahead?

    i played with @mail and i really like it, think it will make a great replacement to horde

  10. Just curious what the results were for this?

    IMP’s okay, but it’s strengths are the Horde framework to provide all the Groupware/PIM stuff which obviously doesn’t get used here. I like SquirrelMail but it’s a bit minimalist if your used to IMP/the Horde framework.
