I’m moving away from Google and chose Mailbox.org as new provider.
Aside: Seems to be quite a nice service for 3€/month (30€/year) with mail, calender, contacts, cloud. The mail and calender web interface works nicely in Web+, their online office suite (word processor, spreadsheet etc.) to a varying degree, faster with Epiphany. Haven’t used the suite much at all. I prefer a local app exchanging files via WebDav - “cadaver” on Haiku works nicely for that (anyone up for a WebDav FS? )
Back to my question:
I can set up a number of aliases at Mailbox.org. Is there a way to conveniently choose which alias to use when sending mail from Haiku?
Only way I found yet is to change “Real name” and “Return address” in the E-Mail preferences, close the preferences (an “Apply” is not enough!), compose and send my mail, and change those settings back.
Is there a better way?
Not really, sorry.
There would have to be a way to change the from header, maybe with a field. (and return adress and real name etc)
It’s a bit unfortunate because my mail server allows infinite adressed I could send from, with the smtp credentials I have configured now.
Webdav is a https based filesystem, what about nfs?
Wouldn’t creating multiple accounts in the Mail app work?
Yes, kinda. But this is more difficult than the workaround already described and undoable with infinite aliases, it would also make mail_darmon download copied of all emails severall times.
I don’t think Mailbox.org’s cloud supports that.
WRT my alias problem, I guess I’ll hack a little script to switch between two sets of settings files in
Would it make sense to create an enhancement ticket to add “Profiles” or “Aliases” to the E-Mail preferences’ “Account settings”:
Maybe a pop-up menu at the top similar to e.g. Terminal’s colour schemes?
I’d suggest a From: field to the email settings which is editable, has the same dropdown UI as the other fields and only appears when (atleast one) alias is configured.
As a bonus maybe it remembering if you used an alias once, and a setting to match the sender adress to the one it was received for. : )
It looks like there is a FUSE one: davfs2 - Summary [Savannah] that should be possible to get working with uerlandfs
Getting it build would be one thing, getting it to interact with userlandfs is another one and out of my skills.
You can have a look at the sshfs recipe for an example. It is mostly about linking with -luserlandfs_fuse instead of -lfuse, I think?
Thanks on the pointer, will try to see if I can give it a look today, first openldap.
- Add Haiku to supported OS’s (done)
- Fix not having sys/sysctl.h (done)
- Not fixed, Haiku doesn’t have fstab (didn’t find any fixes for that on haikuports)
