Clean, well laid out and uncluttered. Probably the best webmail user interface available thanks to
DHTML context menus, drag 'n' drop message moving, and a folder frame autohide facility for a more fluid
email experience (subject to browser capabilities).
Keep commonly used addresses to hand, with facilities to add
entries by hand or from received emails. Now sporting a much
enhanced UI and grouping facilities.
For easy handling of multiple names, addresses and reply addresses
you can now define multiple identities and choose the appropriate
one at compose time.
Quickly find emails with the built in search. Searchable criteria
include From, Subject, Body and Received dates. IMAP accounts have
the extra feature of being able to search multiple folders simultaneously.
Full support for attachments
View online (browser permitting) or download for offline viewing. All
types are handled, attached messages being treated just as any other message.
Multiple attachments can be sent with composed messages.
Can be enabled/disabled via preferences (also by administrator). Renders inline
with support for embedded images/objects (which are shown as attachments when in
text mode). Dangerous tags can be disabled through the configuration files.
