First of all, I probably should have worded my post differently. I completely understand why the developers decided to do it that way (there is a longer discussion about it on GitHub), I just don’t necessarily agree with this decision.😉 Also, I only use Mailcow for personal use, and can very well live with it as it is now. To me it’s just a small imperfection in an otherwise great product.
DerLinkman But what would you “recommend” us to do if the admin page should not be a landing page then?
Tell us and we can discuss about it.
I would prefer if mail.mydomain.tld would land directly on Sogo, or in my case Roundcube and the admin interface would be in a sub directory like e.g. /admin or so. The second best option. would be if both were in separate sub folders, like /admin and /webmail, because then I could easy redirect mail.mydomnain.tld to maildomain.com/webmail.
I know that i could use another subdomain, or I could name my mail server differently, but that’s not ideal either, because ideally the names / URLs for the webmail and for the email clients would be identical. But again, It’s not that big of a deal for me, as it might have sounded in my previous post. 🙂
D4niel Well, you are always free to use something else if you find something better. I didn’t find projects with such a convenient self-made web interface yet.
Yes, of course one can do many things, and at the end of the day it is open source, I get it.
DerLinkman And by the way: The project is completely open source so you can contribute too if you have any ideas and changes which are not only words 🙂
I have absolutely nothing against the admin interface itself, I actually agree with you, that it is one of the best out there.
But! 😉 I don’t think it’s a good fit for a landing page, because let’s face it, you don’t need to change the settings in the Admin UI every day, but might use your webmail every day. Also, most normal users, like e.g. my girlfriend, don’t know what most of the settings are in there, and they have me to configure them ;-) The only thing normal users would looking for, is an option to change their passwords, which is also possible through Sogo or Roundcube. This may of course be diffefrent if you are using Nextcloud to provide hosting services. But even then, in most cases, only the domain admin would use the admin panel, on a daily basis.
