Additional Webmail Improvements

Another area with improved features is SmarterMail’s web client. The goal is to ensure that the SmarterMail webmail client is as effective, efficient, and powerful as any desktop email client on the market. With that in mind, the improvements include: 

  • Added the ability subscribe to external web calendars such as external holiday calendars, PTO calendars from HR services and more 
  • Added the ability to set 2 different autoresponders: one for other domain users and one for everyone else, allowing users to customize a message for co-workers and have a separate one from people outside your organization 
  • Added more context (right click) menu options to allow users to interact within areas with a simple right mouse click 
  • Improved dark theme – greater contrast and more consistent colors 
  • New toggle for switching between light and dark reading panes 
  • Improved tool tips and their presentation 
  • Better organization of settings for users and administrators
