New Right-Click Context Menus in WebMail

LuxSci has updated its WebMail application to behave even more like a regular email program.  Now, users can right click on folders in the WebMail folder tree and on messages in the email message list.  The right clicks will bring up little pop-up context menus of actions that can be performed on the folder (i.e. share, delete, remove deleted messages, etc.) or on the message (i.e. view, reply, delete, etc.)

While the commands added can all be accessed in other ways — though menus or hot keys — their presence in right-click context menus makes access to them faster, more natural, and more like other access to similar functions in other programs.

LuxSci’s right-click context menus work in all FireFox, Internet Explorer v6+, Opera v10+, Safari, and Chrome.

In the future, we will be extending the use of these context menus to the WebAide interfaces (i.e. address books, calendars, tasks, etc.) and Widgets as well to provide more functionality with less clutter in the user interface.
