one big drawback and few suggestions

Postby hatbrox » Thu Aug 05, 2004 12:56 am

Hi,
this is the 2nd time I post some suggestions but it seems that you deleted it.
If this forum is the right place to post suggestions, please notify me!

The first thing that came through this morning was that I want to reorganize my folders structure. I discovered that barca does not allow to drag & drop folders and subfolders. One have to first create the new structure and then move the messages. I think I don't need to tell you what I think.
It's such a pain and is taking me hours. I'm actually considering switching to another email client just because of that.
I'm sure this will happen in the future and I cannot afford to spend so much time.

The other improvement are somwhat minor:
1/ full support of imap (you already know that!!!)
2/ in the folder list, it would be cool to be able change the color, font size of the folders.
when you have 10 root folders in addition to the out of the box folders, it's difficults to identify quickly where to go.
Another way would be to see my account in the folder list with the account name in bold or something like that. (see mozilla thunderbird for some inspiration)

3/ a tool to import contact from outlook express.
At the moment, I cannot use the CSV format as most of my contact have internationnal code in their phone number (eg 0044, 0031 etc) the CSV format ignore the 2 first zeros. The only workaround I've found (but not done yet) is to install eudora and use it as gateway!

4/ more cosmetic: couldn't we have the option to option to apply skins? you already provide such a tool in pocomail.

5/ hotmail/http mail support would be nice, I'd like so much to get rid of outlook express

barca has fantastic features but manipulating folders is really a pain in the "derrière"!

Thanks

Barca, like Pocomail, moves mailboxes via drag and drop just fine.

Note that you can not d&d a submailbox under another mailbox unless there is already a submailbox under that destination mailbox. This is because only when a submialbox is under a mailbox is that mailbox considered a folder illegible for submailboxes.

Hotmail is proprietary. The reason OE can access it is they are both Microsoft products. I think there are some pop3 gateways to Hotmail available. They could be used in conjunction with Barca to access Hotmail.

...in addtion, anytime Microsoft chose to change the access methods for Hotmail those "pop3 gateways" (web2pop, Izymail to name a few) have to be revised also (hence the spyware nature of Incredimail and its gazzillion downloads due to weekly updates), which is why many applications that allows access to Hotmail, Yahoo, and other proprietary email systems are server based and charge subscription.

Indeed I need to move sub mailboxes.
I really don't see any technical issue that could prevent this.
All other emails I've been using allow this.

Any chance this will be available in future updates/releases?

cheers
