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!


New Notices Plugin in SVN

    The other day a poster in the Forums asked if it was possible to play a sound file when a new message arrived. I thought this would be a fun plugin to put together and decided to give this a try. I just committed the initial version, called "notices", to SVN. The plugin allows users to play a sound file and/or to pop open a browser window notifying them of a new message. There is still more work to do and I have only tested with Firefox but it's shaping up pretty well. Here are some details:

Happy New Year

   The idea of rewriting Hastymail starting brewing about this time last year. I was working on a web application framework in PHP and thought it would be possible to pull out some of the inner workings of the original software and re-arrange it within a new design. Taking the time to do the work became a New Years resolution actually, and one I can honestly say I did my best to follow through on (which is unusual for me).

Hastymail2 RC 3 Released

    I am happy to announce that the third release candidate of Hastymail2 is now available. The rewrite of Hastymail began at the beginning of this year with the first SVN check-in date of January 9th 2008. I had hoped to have a stable release by the end of the year but we are not quite there yet. We have made significant progress however and I am really pleased with how things are going. Testing and feedback have been great and I think this is the best version of Hastymail yet! Thanks to everyone who has supported the project. Here are the changes since RC 2 followed by a link to download Hastymail2 at Sourceforge.

Code Updates for December 17

    It's been just over a week since the second release candidate was put together and overall things are looking good. We had a nice bump in activity and have already put in place a handful of fixes to SVN that address some newly reported issues. As always thanks to everyone who has given the code a try and supplied feedback. RC2 had a few more changes than I anticipated so this next release will be more limited to bug fixing. I had hoped that after RC3 we would be seriously considering our first stable release but because things have not settled down quite as much in SVN as I would like, I am now thinking we will go up to RC4 at least before declaring a stable release. Here is the latest from the CHANGES file since RC2 came out:

Hastymail2 Release Candidate 2 is Now Available

    We are happy to announce the second release candidate of Hastymail2. The changes since RC 1 are all over, and while mostly fixes some are "missing" features that did not require major code changes to implement. New development has shifted to plugins as we try to solidify the core code as we near our first stable release. This release has 3 new plugins worth checking out:

New logger plugin in SVN

    Hot on the heels of the filters plugin we have another new addition to add to our colleciton, the logger plugin. This plugin logs Hastymail activity. It's a pretty simple plugin but it does have quite a few options. Log messages can be saved with one of four different mechanisms: syslog, apache/php, a custom log file, or a database.

New Message Filters Plugin in SVN

    Over the years one of the most requested features for Hastymail has been to filter messages from the INBOX to other folders based on a string being present in the message. I have always believed that filtering is best handled on the delivery of messages to a mailbox but there are situations in which server side filtering is just not an option. Since we now have a plugin API I thought this would be both a nice addition as well as a good work out for the plugin system. It took about 3 hours to put together and so far is functional but needs a few more features and some more testing. It will be included in the next RC release (which should be soon). Here is the README file for the plugin from SVN:

Code Updates for November 23

    It's been almost a month since the first release candidate and development and testing have been busy. Thanks to everyone who has posted in the forums or provided feedback. There have been quite a few changes in SVN and once a few more issues are addressed the second release candidate will be ready. In the meantime I am posting an SVN snapshot on the  Download page for anyone who wants a sneak peek of how things are shaping up. Here are the latest changes since the first candidate came out:

Hastymail2 Release Candidate 1 is Now Available

I am happy to announce that the first release candidate of Hastymail2 is now available for download. As always a big thanks to everyone who has been testing and providing feedback and bug reports.  This will be the first of 3 or 4 release candidates  as we finalize the code for the first stable release of Hastymail2. There are quite a few fixes and updates since the Beta 3 release and I encourage everyone to upgrade and let us know what you think. The following are the change log entries since the last news update:

Code Updates for September 20

    Update time again. There have been a handful of fixes as well as some more testing and feedback since the last news update. Enough to warrant a snapshot release on the Download page. Unless something unusual happens I expect this snapshot to be very similar to the next official release. Speaking of which I think it is about time to switch from beta releases to release candidates, and I hope to get an RC-1 out within the next week or two. Thanks again to everyone who has been checking out Hastymail and providing feedback. As of now all reported bugs are fixed and my list of to-do items is primarily housekeeping.
