Squirrelmail's usability would improve if there were
html accesskeys specified for most common operations
such as
- delete message
- previous message
- next message
- compose new message

It should not be difficult to implement. I have enabled
some accesskey functionality by editing the following
functions:
- makeComposeLink
- makeInternalLink
- displayInternalLink
- formatMenubar

SquirrelMail version 1.4.6

    Thank you for your report. I agree with your suggestion.
    It's however more of a feature request than a bug. It seems
    that you've already done some work on this, do you wish to
    submit a patch?

    I tried to apply changes to 1.5.1 source, but the code seems
    to have changed from 1.4.6 quite a lot. I do not have enough
    time to finalize/test accesskey patch for the latest version.

    The patch is attached in case someone else has time to
    continue the work.

  • accesskey support has been added to version 1.5.2. It is user-configurable (Options->Accessibility). If you find some common function should have an accesskey, please feel free to suggest it. Thanks!
