Help test updated features

We’re currently trialing two three updated pieces of code on our beta server. You can access the beta server by going to:

http://www.fastmail.fm/beta/

And logging in as normal.

1. Improved folder message/unread count caching. This should improve the overall responsiveness of the interface, especially for users with many folders. More details in the forum thread here.

2. Updated pop retrieval system that will hopefully deal with some intermittent errors people have been seeing. More details in the forum thread here.

3. Body text searches on the Define Rules screen. You can now search the text of emails as part of your filtering/reject rules. More details in the forum thread here

Update: All these features have now been rolled out to production servers.

WebDAV enhancements

I’ve added support for a couple of new features in WebDAV.

  1. modified time update support, so clients like NetDrive can now set the modified time of a file to help with synchronisation.
  2. lock support so MacOS 10.3.x can now write files (you still can’t use https until 10.4, that’s a client issue)
  3. client “quirks”, so quota usage works on macs (you can see how much free space you have!)
  4. also, international character support works around a bug in Konqueror.
  5. an attempt to correctly handle clients (like NetDrive) that write filenames in the Windows local character set instead of UTF-8 (*grrr*)

On that last topic, I’d love to hear feedback over in this forum thread about your experience with non-English characters and your client. I’m trying to come up with a full set of workarounds per client to get the best language support we can.

It will fall back to trying to use your “DefCharSet” value from the the Options screen on the web interface – the same way that the email management screens fall back to that character set if the encoding of an email is buggy.
