Hi, I'm the mail administrator for bluehost.com. We've been recently
looking around at webmail clients and stumbled on roundcube and we're
totally impressed. We'd love to deploy roundcube for all of our
50,000 customers to be able to use, but there's a little bit holding
We'd like to be able to pass in pre-defined values to the login form;
before we send them the link to roundcube, we already know their
username and server fields. I'd like to be able to just pass those in
via the URL, for example: http://mailsite/cube?
_user=user at domain.org&_host=mail.domain.org
I've edited the code so that it does this, but I was wondering if it
would be possible for this to be integrated into roundcube. My proof
of concept code is here: http://digiwano.org/rc.patch .
One alternate solution I've been tossing around in my head is the
possibility that the servername be automatically generated by looking
at the email address. All domains that we host use the name
mail.mydomain.com (where mydomain.com is the same as the domain in
user at mydomain.com) for their mailservers. I haven't yet written a
proof of concept for that.
