Features for MailUser

This page covers the features of Mail Portal accessible only for MailUsers (email accounts).

Mail Portal is your one-stop mail administration, webmail, contacts and calendaring gateway. Before following this guide, please make sure you’ve covered the help articles here and here.

Contacts (addressbooks)

Every MailUser has a default addressbook generated upon their creation. Each addressbook can contain multiple contact information.

Contacts can be viewed, created, updated, or deleted from any CardDAV compatible client. The default webmail Roundcube supports CardDAV.

To share your addressbook with others, from Actions column > select Share button and follow the on-screen prompts.

Sieve filters

Sieve filters (message filters) enable organizing your emails automatically based on certain conditions. Filters can move/copy messages to folders/subfolders, forward them to other email addresses with or without keeping a copy, and reject/discard them.

A common objective is to forward emails to others while retaining a copy of the email yourself. A few key things to consider are:

  • Forwards from sieve filters are limited to at most 4 recipients.
  • Filters are executed sequentially, so the sieve rule to retain (keep) messages must have higher priority (lower number) than the forward rules.

The setup

  • Filter position: 1
  • Filter name: Keep and forward mails
  • Match type: All messages
  • Perform action: Keep and forward message to
  • Email address: recipient@domain.tld

Sieve filters

Tip

Subfolders can be specified using the dot notation, for example a subfolder of Inbox named Personal can be specified in a sieve rule’s mailbox folder name as Inbox.Personal

Vacation autoreply or autoresponder can be used to automatically respond to incoming emails.

Each sender would receive at most one autoreply message per day when enabled.
