WebMail Enhancements: Faster and Faster We Go

Fewer clicks and faster access to your email … isn’t that what we all want? LuxSci’s latest WebMail enhancements keep us on track toward faster and easier.

Among minor changes and bug fixes, our latest enhancements include:

Automatic Loading of New Email

When new email messages arrive, you no longer have to click on “Get Email” to see what they are — they are automatically loaded and displayed to you in the user interface.  No need to click and wait a second.

Auto-loading of new email occurs when:

  1. You are not sorting or are sorting by date, read status, or thread
  2. You are not in the middle of a search
  3. You are viewing the “page” of messages that includes the newest messages in your sorted list
  4. You are using “WebMail Acceleration” (which is on by default for everyone).

Don’t worry, if these criteria are not met, you will still be informed of new messages in the usual way and you can click on “Get Email” to load them when you are ready.

Automatic Loading of More Email as you Delete

If you are deleting messages from your folder so that there are fewer and fewer messages left in the currently display, WebMail will now automatically load more messages for you once you have deleted 25% of the messages that you started with

E.g. lets say that you are viewing messages 101-200 in your INBOX and start deleting unwanted messages.  If your settings cause deleted messages to be removed immediately from your folder (as opposed to merely getting a “strike” through them), then as you delete messages, they will disappear and you will have fewer and fewer messages visible in your list.  Once you have deleted 25 messages, WebMail automatically loads up to 25 more — so you  maybe then be looking at messages 88 – 187, for example (it loads some on both sides of what you have left, as appropriate).

This allows you to continue looking and deleting without needing to refresh the page or reset your position in your large folder.

More Frequent Email Checking

With WebMail Acceleration, checking for new email is very fast and efficient.  WebMail now knows this and uses less bandwidth when checking for changes to your folder.  It also now checks for new email more than twice as fast — once every 30 seconds, instead of once every 60s or more.

You can sit back and webmail does all the work — checking for new email frequently and showing you new messages automatically.

Automatic Re-Try for Automatic Email Checking

In the past, if there was some issue that interrupted WebMail’s automatic checking for changes to your email folder, you would get a big fat warning and automatic checking would have stopped until you clicked on “Get Email” to start it going again.

Now, if something interrupts the connection (e.g. you closed your laptop, you lost your internet connection, WebMail was having maintenance, etc.), the system does not bother you with a warning and automatically keeps re-trying the checks every 30s.  So, once it can make a successful connection again (e.g. you re-open your laptop) , it picks up where it left off … not skipping a beat or bothering you with things you “have to do” to get it going.

Auto-Logout Warning

Now that you do not have to click to get your new email, you may be interacting with the web interface less, especially if you are busy with other things.  So, it is more likely that you may approach your “session timeout” … the amount of time you can leave WebMail alone and have it churn along happily before it automatically logs you out for safety.

With this new update, 1 minute before your session is going to expire, you will get a little pop-up counting down the seconds (and it plays a sound).  You can click to dismiss it and “re-up” your session before being forced to re-login — a time saver.
