Hastymail2 is an Open Source IMAP webmail client written in PHP. Our focus is compliance, usability, security, and speed.
2015-04-16 Update:

Sadly Hastymail2 is no longer being maintained. Happily this is because we are working on a new web-based E-mail client, called Cypht. If you need support your best bet is the #hastymail IRC channel at freenode. Thanks to everyone who contributed to and supported this project!


Hastymail2 1.0 Stable Released

   We are happy to announce the immediate availability of the first stable release of Hastymail2. It has taken almost 3 years of development to reach this point and we are excited about the state of the project. Thanks to everyone who has supported us with testing and feedback. Development does not stop here, actually we already have some pretty cool stuff in the works. Here is the full change log since the RC9 release, as well as some interesting summary numbers about the project and it's development:

Code Updates for June 14

  Things are really shaping up in SVN as we finalize the code for our first stable release. Many bugs have been addressed and a few small features added. Lots of fine tuning has been going on all over the code base. The plugin API documentation has been updated to include all the latest hooks and methods. The themes have had some clean up and we have a new theme called "moss" (screenshot below). TinyMCE, Soundmanager2, and htmLawed have been updated to their latest versions. Here is the full list of what's new since the last update:

Code Updates for April 25

    Development has been busy since the last release, thanks to everyone who has supported the project through feedback. We have a lot of improvements and updates in SVN, enough that things need to settle for a week or two so any regressions can be identified. Overall things are looking good and we are on track for the next release being the first officially stable version. Here are the details of whats new since the last release:

Hastymail2 RC 9 Released

   It's hard to believe that 98 days have passed since the last Hastymail2 release, but development has been very active during this time. We are happy to announce that the ninth release candidate is now available for download from Sourceforge:


This WILL be the last of the release candidates. The next release will be our first stable package, and unless something really unexpected comes up I think the code in the first stable release will be very similar to this one. Thanks as always to everyone who supports the project. Here is the full list of changes and additions since RC8 came out:

Hastymail2 RC8 Released

   We are happy to announce that Hastymail2 RC8 has been released. The updates and improvements since RC7 are substantial. New plugins, theme improvements, new features, a ton of fixes, plugin API updates, and more. The change log has 65 entries total. We believe this to be the best version of Hastymail2 yet and urge all users to upgrade. Thanks as always to everyone who has supported the project through feedback and testing.

Code Updates for November 24

    We are way over due for a new release, the change log since RC7 is getting HUGE. Things are looking good however. All of the issues reported since the last release have been addressed and are either resolved or awaiting feedback, and some cool new features have been added. I really think things are shaping up for our first stable release, though the next will be yet another candidate. I am targeting this time next week for RC8, then the first stable version before the end of the year. Here is what is new since the last news update:

Code Updates for October 21

    I am happy to say it has been a busy 10 days in Hastymail-land since the last update. We have only a few new entries in the CHANGES file but they are significant and worth mentioning. First up is a new plugin called js_sign. This plugin converts the "Sign" button on the compose page from a normal HTTP POST form submission into an AJAX call that inserts the signature into the in-process message at the current cursor position. Also new is an enhancement to the plugin system that allows plugins to register javascript event handlers without stomping on any core Hastymail events or those supplied by other plugins. Finally we have a new option that enables periodic AJAX updates of the mailbox view when the folder dropdown/list is updated.

Code Updates for October 11

    RC7 has been out for a while now and things are looking good. Feedback has resulted in a handful of new features, many fixes, and three new plugins. The new plugins are a uuencode plugin that decodes uuencoded messages, an auto-complete address plugin for the compose page, and an IMAP quota plugin that displays quota information. All could use more testing in different environments (I posted an SVN snapshot for anybody interested in doing so, link below). Here is the complete list of updates and fixes since RC7 was released:

Hastymail2 RC 7 Released

I am happy to announce that Hastymail2 RC7 is now available for download. We have been way behind on releases so while there are still a few issues being working on the list of fixes and additions since RC 6 is significant enough to warrant a release. We've got a few new plugins, several subsystem improvements, much improved w3c xhtml compliance, and a slew of miscellaneous bug fixes throughout the code. Here is the full set of changes since the last release:

Code Updates for May 21

   Development continues since the last release and we have some nice improvements and fixes thanks in no small part to feedback from the forums, email, and bug reports. As always thanks to everyone who supports the project. I am happy with the way things are settling down with the code but I plan on putting out at least one more release candidate before considering a stable version. The next release will utilize a new GPL'ed class for a few things, an HTML to text converter, thanks to a suggestion in the forums. It is small, well written, and available at http://www.chuggnutt.com/html2text.php. I have also added to SVN a rough draft of a new theme based on a design submitted in the forums. It needs testing and work but I hope to polish it up in time for the next release. Here is the breakdown of what is new since RC6:
