Is there an option to either:
- Use the Mail application as an IMAP client to an external server?
- Add a 3rd party mail client into the EGroupware UI (e.g. RainLoop, RoundCube)
Our current desktop email clients (Thunderbird, Outlook) fetch mail from multiple source domains, so use the “combined Inbox” model. I was wondering if we can use the Mail app in this mode – as an IMAP client to an external server rather than the one installed with EGW. If not with multiple external IMAP sources, then maybe with just one, such that we can specify, per user, an external IMAP server, login, password, and SMTP details?
The motivation for this setup is to take advantage of the local Calendar, AddressBook, Notes, Tasks data-tables, and sync via ActiveSync to the other platforms (androd-native calendar/contacts/notes/tasks & standalone Thunderbird+Lightning), all while having the use entire eGroupware platform.
I realize that I could try move entirely off our other email servers (say move mailboxes with ImapSync, et al); but that would be difficult with large sorted mail folders. Just asking if there’s an option to not use the bundled Dovecot/Postfix server. Thanks.
