New column in pop3 connector table



:pray: what do you think about adding at least a third column to the pop3 commector table with the account name of the local user that will receive the downloaded messages? :pray:
Maybe also others columns could be useful, like:
delete mail (from server) | SSL | Enabled

do you mean to add such fields only for information purpose, don’t you?

(Alessio Fattorini) #3

Please, can you make a mock? Or could you modify a screenshot?


@zamboni yes of course, only to have a general view

i know i must be more clear, but sometimes for me is difficult even in my native language :slight_smile:
@ale this is my modified screenshot of Pop3 Connector > Account Tab


|    Account     |       Actions       |
| email addressA | Disable/Edit/Delete |
| email addressB | Disable/Edit/Delete |
| email addressC | Disable/Edit/Delete |

to something like:

| Account |       Actions       | Local User | SSL | Protocol | Delete | Enabled |
| email A | Disable/Edit/Delete | user1      | Yes | pop3     | yes    | no      |
| email B | Disable/Edit/Delete | user2      | No  | imap     | yes    | yes     |
| email C | Disable/Edit/Delete | user1      | Yes | imap     | no     | no      |

or maybe better (if Disabled we can see in actions column):

|    Account     | Local User | SSL | Protocol | Delete |       Actions       |
| email addressA | user1      | Yes | pop3     | yes    | Disable/Edit/Delete |
| email addressB | user2      | No  | imap     | yes    | Disable/Edit/Delete |
| email addressC | user1      | Yes | imap     | no     | Disable/Edit/Delete |

what do you think?

update: to get the idea of what i mean

Wrong column in Pop3 Connector view table
(Giacomo Sanchietti) #5

Add/remove columns it’s quite simple.
Instead, adding a new button requires a little bit of extra work.

Is there anyone else interested in this enchantment?

(Alessio Fattorini) #6

It sounds interesting otherwise you have to click every account to know the current configuration.
Mockup is really cool! Thanks @dz00te

Folks if you are interested like the first @dz00te post :smile: therefore it can climb this ranking


not really a mockup… sorry i’m not able to use any graphic software (or to draw anything) :frowning:
so after the unsuccessful ascii art, i added the columns in Accounts.php + screenshot

to all: :pray: Vote for this incredibly useful enhancement (at least for me :slight_smile: )

(Alessio Fattorini) #8

Like your try, thanks for the “graphic” mockup! People, if you want it, reply to this topic and like the first @dz00te post! :smile:


Due to the great success of the request, I opened a Enhancement on redmine and a pull request :grin:

(Filippo Carletti) #10

From the changelog, I see that the original author of nethserver-fetchmail is @giacomo, I’m waiting for his approval of the pull request.
I like it.

(Alessio Fattorini) #11

Way to go @dz00te! Hope @giacomo agrees to merge it

(Giacomo Sanchietti) #12

The pull request seems good to me.

Only one note: YES and NO values are not translated. Do you want to translate them?


oh yes you’re right, I’ll try
but I have never used php, perl and git, only a little of python and svn
so, be patient :slight_smile: :pray:

(Giacomo Sanchietti) #14

IMHO we can leave it without translation :smile:


Yes i agree, but i’ve already submitted another pull request. If you don’t like it feeling free to trash it :smile:

(Giacomo Sanchietti) #16

Pull request is now merged, rpm for testing will be available in all mirrors starting from tomorrow.


Thanks @dz00te!


I know that I should not test it myself, but the changes are minimal, so i could not resist and i’ve tested it… :grin:

(Giacomo Sanchietti) #18

You’re right but I already tested it :smile:

The update will be available since tomorrow:

(Alessio Fattorini) #19

Implemented and released.
