Litepost : The Future of Webmail

by Karthik on July 31, 2007 · 1 comment

Litepostemail has grown leaps and bounds since the time it started. From a meager 2mb storage to a whopping 2gb storage, from cluttered interfaces to clutter free interfaces. But email still remains popular in the hands of gmail and yahoo.

There has not been much contribution from the open source apps particularly, Horde or SquirrelMail. These apps have been at a standstill, both in terms of features and appearance, for nearly three years. But that is all set to change with the arrival of Litepost.

Litepost is the future of webmail if I can say. Litepost is continuously developing. Being open source it has a great community support. Right now they are in beta so it will be quite a little time before a release usable by the general public comes out.

Here are some of the features of Litepost

  • Inbox on Detox
  • Litepost is the most intuitive webmail solution you’ll ever use. Clutter is the norm in web interfaces these days; Litepost does much better. The innovative features will help you communicate better rather than getting in your way.

  • Message Ratings
  • A built-in rating system allows you to organize messages in your inbox based on the quality of their content, so you can easily find only the important emails.

  • Tagging
  • Web 2.0 is all about tagging these days. Litepost has it built in. Not only that, tagging is a fundamental part of our webmail technology, replacing the old concept of mail folders. Rather than looking for an email in folders with vague names, simply filter through your inbox with descriptive tags.

  • It’s the Interface
  • Litepost supports interface templates, allowing you to choose one that best suits your webmail needs. More sophisticated than simple “skins”, interface templates let you not only change look of your email experience, but allow you to alter functionality, adding or subtracting features you may or may not need.

Litepost is definitely the future of webmail. Litepost looks very promising and dailyApps will keep a watch on it. To download Litepost for your webserver click here. The webmail functionality is expected to launch very soon. It is now in a private beta.
