Every time user sends an email, WebApp maintains history of the used email addresses for suggestion purposes. All collected addresses are available as suggestions while the user is trying to fill address fields like “TO” and “CC” while creating, replying to or forwarding an email.

 
Starting from version 1.3.svn38734, WebApp has the option to delete any address from the suggestion list. When the suggestion list appears, the user can select any... Read full post

Securing WebApp

December 13, 2012 by Ivo Timmermans   Comments (2)

, , ,

While we take care that the WebApp contains no programming flaws that can reduce security, there are a few things that you, as system administrator, can do to improve security. The most obvious one is to only allow access to WebApp when using SSL, but there is more. For this article, we will assume that you serve WebApp using Apache, but other HTTP servers have similar options.

Use TLS/SSL, get an official certificate
Anyone knows you should use SSL, and of course you can run a web server... Read full post

WebApp: iCal Im/Exporter

December 9, 2012 by Chris   Comments (0)

Hi everyone,
today I've released a new version of my "calenderimporter" plugin.  The name is a little bit misleading, because I have implemented a new feature: the ical exporter.  You are now able to export every calendar completely to an ics file.

 At the moment you can only export the whole calendar. But I'm trying to integrate the same selection mechanism as in the importer, to filter the events that will be exported.

The importer can also import all events with just... Read full post

WebApp: Owncloud Plugin

Hello everybody,
as I saw the Dropbox plugin, I thought that something like this should be available for owncloud too.

 
The plugin uses the webdav server of owncloud for file operations between zarafa and owncloud. Its interface for attaching a file to a new mail is very simillar to the Dropbox plugin.
You can choose one or more files. Even from different folders!
 
I have extended the plugin so that you can instantly upload... Read full post

WebApp Search Changes

November 30, 2012 by Monomon   Comments (0)

, , , , ,

In recent iterations of the WebApp search, we decided to make it more developer-friendly.
Constructing a search restriction was complicated by the fact that there were multiple ways of referring to MAPI properties.

How it works
Zarafa search conforms to MAPI; search terms are defined in the MAPI search restriction format (SRestriction).
This is a tree structure which contains operations, such as logical operators (AND, OR), and operands, which could be subrestrictions, property value... Read full post
