Hastymail2 is an Open Source IMAP webmail client written in PHP. Our focus is compliance, usability, security, and speed.
2015-04-16 Update:

Sadly Hastymail2 is no longer being maintained. Happily this is because we are working on a new web-based E-mail client, called Cypht. If you need support your best bet is the #hastymail IRC channel at freenode. Thanks to everyone who contributed to and supported this project!


Code Updates For January 2013

We have quite a few new developments in SVN thanks to great feedback and contributions from many people. To everyone providing feedback, patches, and plugins, we appreciate your support! Here is what has changed in SVN since the last stable release.

Hastymail2 1.1 Stable Released

We are happy to announce the release of the 1.1 stable version of Hastymail2. It is recommended that all users upgrade to this version as it contains two security related fixes. You can read more about those on our security page. Along with those are a bunch of other fixes and updates that make upgrading a good idea. Here is the complete list of what is new in this version since the RC2 release:

Code Updates For May 15

Lots of updates and fixes since the last release. The next one is right around the corner and will be 1.1 final instead of another release candidate. Here is the full list of what's new since RC2 came out:

I have been a slacker lately. No more!
First off I need to apologize for my delayed response time to E-mail, tracker submissions, and forum posts. I have been just terribly remiss about promptly replying lately. I am happy to say that as of now I am officially caught up (on correspondence at least). All pending E-mail has been replied to, forum posts have been responded to, and new tracker items have been added to address what I believe to be all pending issues. If I missed your message please accept my apologies and resend it, I will do my best to not miss it again. In the near future we will:

New forums and site design

We have forums again! and we have upgraded to a better open source package than the home grown solution we were using. I don't know if I can import the existing posts but will try to. You will have to sign up for an account to post, but that is just to keep spammers away (hopefully!). We also have a new site design which was long overdue since the style has not been altered since the site first launched. The mantis bug tracker has also been updated to the latest version and both it and the forums have been integrated into the new design. Thanks to my employer's generous policy of allowing software engineers one day a year to dedicate themselves to open source projects I was able to take a paid day off from work and get all these improvements in place!


Hastymail2 1.1 RC2 Now Available

RC2 is out with a handful of improvements but most importantly some security fixes. We want to thank Bruno Teixeira for disclosing these. It is recommended that all users upgrade to mitigate any potential problems. You can read more about the specific issues at our security page. Here is the short change log since RC1:

Forums Temporarily Down
We have been noticing some troubling entries in the web server access log that suggest some not so friendly entities are abusing or attempting to abuse the forums. They are old and slow and on the roadmap to be replaced anyway so just in case they are being abused I have disabled them until a suitable replacement can be put into place. Hopefully I will have something up and running this weekend.

Hastymail2 1.1 RC1 Now Available

The first release candidate for the next stable version of Hastymail2 is now available. There are a few more fixes since the last news update and still two known issues to resolve. The known issues are a display related problem with IE9 and certain themes, and a problem with the auto-save draft feature on the compose page with the EIMS IMAP server. We encourage all users to upgrade to this version as it has tons of fixes and improvements over the last stable release. Once the known issues are resolved, and assuming nothing new comes up, we will package up the final 1.1 version. Below are the changes since the last news post and a link to the release downloads:

New release in the works

   I honestly can't believe it's been over 300 days since the last stable release. Development has been busy and as always I want to thank everyone who has taken the time to provide feedback. The change log since 1.01 was released is massive and includes a ton of fixes and improvements. We have some cool new plugins like a select range plugin that lets you use shift-click to quickly select multiple messages, and a message tags plugin that lets you organize your mail using tags. There are a couple of new themes as well, one of which provides a significantly different look. I plan to get a release candidate packaged up soon and if things look good an official release shortly after. Below is the full list of changes and a few screen shots.

Hastymail2 1.01 Stable Released

   We have a new stable release available to address a recently discovered cross site scripting issue. The only change to the code over the 1.0 release is this specific fix. It's unfortunate to have a security issue pop up so soon after the first stable release, but it does indicate that we are getting some increased publicity (sourceforge stats support this also). Having people searching for flaws in our code really helps us make Hastymail2 more secure. Read on for details of the specific issue and what can be done to resolve the problem.
