We are very close to where we want the new webmail (Runbox 7) to be in terms of the basic features. We have put a lot of effort into the core functionality to make it as fast and user-friendly as possible, and it now outperforms the major competitors hands-down.

Currently we are fixing some minor issues in the user interface and adding auto-completion of contacts. We will provide information about the beta as soon as this is ready.

We have completed the tasks described in my previous post. However, during more thorough testing we have uncovered that additional, minor adjustments to the user interface are needed.

Overall we are very happy about the status of Runbox 7 and we can't wait to introduce it to everyone.

Stay tuned!

We also can't wait but as per usual, I guess we'll have to wait quite a while.

I also can hardly wait but I hope RB does not do what a Rival service did in my opinion make their service so complex that Joe Average could not use it. I want RB to remain the most user friendly service I have ever used.

And I hope it would be delivered as promised. One can't believe that in this day and age it takes so long to make a new webmail version, especially when competitors upgrade theirs daily and you have open source webmails a la open xchange that are full featured and that you can license and then upgrade as you wish. The rmm7 beta was told it would be accessible before summer, it's turn of the year already and nothing. + no calendar.

Runbox doesn't have a good track track record for keeping schedule with new developed features... or they're over-eager to release optimistic dates that they often miss... however, in their defense, what they release is typically very solid and reliable, and sometimes even great. Their 2FA took forever to release, for example, but it's a pretty neat implementation, with some outstanding features, worth the wait IMO.

Hope they learn how to develop at a faster pace, but not at the expense of quality. I'd rather have them err on the side of a fastidious quest for perfection than release something early, especially with something mission-critical like email. I'd also rather have them develop something original for their webmail client in-house rather than build off an open-source product. They obviously have access to the source code of the open source clients out there, so they can refer to them for ideas, but I don't want them to fall into the trap of just using an open source client and customize too much, then be stuck with security issues causing a mess of a fork. That would be more costly IMO. And those services are a dime a dozen that offer open-source clients. Runbox, to me, is different/boutique/special -- one of the last special email providers IMO, they need/deserve something totally unique, keep it in-house and control the source code. My two bits.
