    I really like RC as webmail client for my mail server. Nice UI and flow. It even works using good old busybox httpd. No, it's not "supported". Yes, I'm crazy enough to do it anyway. I hope this doesn't mean they're going to stop developing RC as a separate thing. Like many others, I just need a web based IMAP client.

    Mine is set at 128 and it's fine. Still a lot of ram. I haven't heard anyone complaining about ram usage of Google Docs, or O365 backends. Maybe some admins of those could share their thoughts about feature creep.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I have considered it, but I need a server-client model rather than a peer-to-peer model. Maybe SyncThing could provide something like that, too, but it doesn't seem like the best solution for that purpose.

    Thanks for the info! As I said I don't use ownCloud anymore (as I have a choice), so I gave the Ars article () and the CVE (https://nvd.nist.gov/vuln/detail/CVE-2023-49103), which has a base score of 10.

    So maybe I'm just paranoid in this day and age.

    I have always hoped RoundCube WebMail and NextCloud contacts could link up better. I guess that is more than likely at this point.

    I've ran NextCloud for years. I would hope that RC could still be severable , but at this point i guess it's not the biggest deal in the world.

    I tried NC Mail and I am not a fan of it.

    I'm actually thinking of giving my NC a wipe and starting over soon, the Password Manager has broken horribly and wont even load and I've since discontinued use of it entirely. I am not even sure that web-based password management is or ever will be sane.

    If NC Mail wants to take RoundCube to the next level they should literally extend it to do all the administrative functions of a Email Server aswell.

    Configuring and setting up a Email Server is a massive PITA that is badly in need of simplification if the internet of the future is going to continue to be node to node instead of centralized trash.

    the situation is worse then I first understood. the developer of roundcube is leaving the project.



    In this context I'm pleased that he found it a good home (in the sense that theys are pretty good opensource guys the understand php webapps). It's also good that they plan to have standalone releases for the forseeable future.

    I stopped using nextcloud because it was a mess to setup, and fedora didnt' have the latest versions in their repos but just looking that seems to be fixed. based on that interview, I wouldn't be surprised if they start to add nextcloud core libraries to easy maintainers burden, but hopefully nothing too radical that it's not a seemless upgrade.

    I've played around with nextclould, but found it to be jack of all trades master of none. And didn't help that it's not packaged in fedora.

    Honestly though, Roundcube is/was also trying to be an all-in-one solution; it’s just that most people weren’t interested. This decision seems to align with their goals, so good for them in that one very narrow respect.
