As our hosted email service grows, we’re working to continually improve the platform while maintaining high availability.
One essential component of our white-label email solution is our Webmail, which resellers can customize and brand as their own.
So today, we’re excited to share that we’re launching a new Webmail, with improved workflows and a clean, mobile-responsive interface. Starting today, users can preview the new Webmail to get familiar with the refreshed interface before its official launch on September 5, 2019.
What email resellers need to know
If you already sell hosted email…
The new Webmail will provide your users with a better email experience. The new interface makes it easier to send emails, manage contacts, organize important events, and more.
Once you’ve reviewed your branding preferences, head to the MAC (Mail Administrator Console) to enable your users to preview the new interface. There are two “Preview” options:
Preview enabled: present your users with the option to toggle between the new and current interfaces upon login
Preview forced: automatically upgrade your customers to the new interface, without the option to revert back
Please note: If you have configured your users to use the Webmail “Default Brand,” they will automatically have the option to preview the new interface from their login page – no action required on your part.
It’s important to know that the transition to the new Webmail will NOT impact your customers’ contacts, settings, or existing data. The various functionalities and features of the OpenSRS Webmail will remain, but their look, location, and how end-users interact with them, will change.
And rest assured, your existing settings and integrations will remain intact.
Checklist for hosted email resellers
To ensure you’re able to effectively promote the new Webmail and ready for its launch, we recommend that you:
Update your support and marketing resources
We’ve created a number of resources to help you out. On our Webmail Landing Page, you’ll find everything from reusable communications templates to detailed end-user guides—repurpose these materials as you see fit.
Review your branding preferences
Before enabling preview for the new Webmail, be sure to review and adjust your branding preferences in the MAC. We’ve created this in-depth guide so you can ensure your Webmail branding is on point. Read more
Make note of the launch timelines
Today: your users can preview the new Webmail to get familiar with the refreshed interface.
Sept. 5, 2019: the new Webmail will become the default experience for all users—our old Webmail will be retired.
Let us know what you think
Between now and Sept. 5 (our new Webmail’s official launch date), we’ll be collecting feedback to help us improve the new interface. Share your thoughts
