The trainable (via IMAP) spam filter is nice.

Whois info on pubbox.net indicates it's fairly new:
Record last updated on: 2006-10-21 15:53:50
Record expires on: 2007-10-04 11:46:26

edit: Sqwebmail is not Squirrelmail
No, not squirrel. I hate PHP.
Sqwebmail has some minor bugs, but it's the nicest/smallest/fastest/most compatible thing i have found.

And PUBBOX is new, but not that new:
It started in December 2005, which can not
be seen in the whois, because of an update.

Most Basic functions like SMTP, IMAP were online in January,
i guess. The first webmail (CAMAS) was then deployed in March,
and was then replaced by Sqwebmail 5 months later.
Anyway CAMAS remains available, for those who prefer it, or
have problems with Sqwebmail, which is unlikely.

PUBBOX is traditional by all means. Services once switched on remain as long as possible.

The spam-filter is good so far, and will improve when going
towards CRM114, which is not an easy task to switch to, so
this takes time.

False Positive did not occur so far, and are not likely to happen.
Even forwarded spam messages are qualifed as "unsure". Comes
in handy when users want to exchange spam messages for analysis purposes...except for image attachements, i am a bit more aggressive there.


And yes, SMTP via SSL will be enabled soon.

Welcome to the forum, PUBBOX! Please send a PM to Edwin (forum owner) to introduce yourself, so he can add the "Representative of:" to your profile.

So far your service seems promising. What is your business model? Do you have plans to offer your service at some point on a commercial basis (for a fee)? if not, what are your goals?

RFC 3207 defines how SMTP connections can make use of encryption. Once a
connection is established, the client issues a STARTTLS command....

SSL is now enabled.
Works both with new style STARTTLS as well as with old crappy clients connecting on port 465.

Not trying to cause a stir but...
I do not see a privacy policy statement anywhere on the site.

It's currently hidden in the Terms and Conditions:

3. PRIVACY

3.1 Pubbox stores your name, ...
3.2 You acknowledge...
(a) comply with any law;
(b) respond to claims of violation of the rights of a third party;
(c) protect the rights, property, or personal safety of Pubbox, its users and the public.

Yes, you are right. This should be available separately, too. Nevertheless, this is a policy, saying: PUBBOX stores minimal information and gives it to no one else until it has no choice, but to do so.

Calendar and other things are hard to implement into SMTP/IMAP. When the time comes PUBBOX will start with an ICAL like interface, maybe via SSL. Webmail integration is always the last thing on PUBBOX, it's just a matter of color, not function.

Try using email clients like Sylpheed, Thunderbird, Outlook, mutt, etc. This is even faster.

and... Danke

There is enough money, don't worry
PUBBOX is, in a matter of perspective, a demonstration showing what can be done, too. Other projects are coming around, these are the profit makers, not the ads i easily could "attach".

Nevertheless, donations are welcome
