We just upgraded to 1.4.0. Every version looks better and sharper. My
compliments to the developers!
I have a couple cosmetic suggestions for future releases. These are taken
from comments from my own members.
1. The "Sign Out" on the top right of the page is hard to locate. I know
that sounds silly, but simply making it the red color of the folders on the
left helped tremendously. I also added the username (stripped of domain)
after sign out, which is a nice touch. i.e. Sign Out: Chris
2. The "Move Selected To" and "Transform Select Messages" box would look
better if it were located below the message list. It clutters the top of
the screen and isn't used nearly as much as the message list itself is.
3. When reading a message, the most common thing people normally do is hit
"reply". The "reply" link is well hidden in small text on the right.
"Message List | Delete" should be moved to the right and "Forward | Forward
as Attachment | Reply | Reply All" should be moved to the left. Then
"Reply" and then "Reply All" should be the left-most options. We read from
left to right, it make sense to put the most commonly used options
4. The "Last Updated" text under Folders is more geeky than useful. Most
people want to see as little text as possible; they only want to see what is
important. Who is going to actually compare the folder time with the
current time? It takes less time to just hit refresh.
Squirrelmail is hands-down the best webmail program out there!
