New Webmail for Birdhouse

Working over the past few weeks to revamp Birdhouse’s webmail system. Because the default interface for CommuniGate’s built-in webmail is beyond ugly, we’ve been running SquirrelMail over IMAP for webmail since launch. But Squirrel doesn’t offer access to all of CGP’s built-in goodies, such as mail searching, rule editing, calendar, tasks, notes, secure login, etc. The solution was in finding the great collection of 3rd-party Wassp skins by SolidInterface. Impressed enough that I bought a license (very affordable!) and went for it.

Launched the new system last night (with aliases redirecting from customer domains), and customer reaction has been very positive. Left Squirrel online at a separate subdomain for people who had grown used to it.
