Synchronize email items status with IMAP folder
« on: October 20, 2010, 04:33:25 am »
In our company we use FengOffice and mail applications via IMAP protocol for work with email.
And we must manually mark each message as read double time, in IMAP and in FengOffice.

Will be good to implement the feature for synchronize each message status with IMAP folder when checking mail. And in IMAP folder we can mark messages as deleted, replied too.

Is this feature possible? Or fengoffice have only one-way sync without sending any data back to IMAP?

Feng 1.7.2 and below does not use all the IMAP functions really. It's behaving like it's POP3. Even when you select IMAP, it will behave like you have connected with POP3.

Feng Office needs to implement some real IMAP functions. Like you said, if it's marked "read" on server, it should be marked "read" in Feng. If it's deleted from server, it should be deleted from Feng. And so on..

Feng Office 1.7.1 onwards allows you synchronize your sent emails with your email server. However, it is true it now is working sort of a POP connection. We might change this in the future, but we do not have plans to do it right now.. So if anyone happens to develop this feature, we will be more than happy to add it in a future version so everyone will be able to enjoy it

Best regards,
