Heya,
My name is Tuqiri and I have been working on a project with Dragoshi named DerpyMail. The site link is here: http://www.derpymail.co.uk/

The site is basically a free mailserver for users who wish to have a @derpymail.co.uk email.

The design is pretty much done but any feedback on the current design so far will be very helpful for development purposes.

Thank you everypony for all the good constructive criticism; it's just what we need ^.=.^

>>38224
>>38230

Yes there is, although .com is no longer giving out addresses, and we'd like to also improve on the .org site's aesthetic as well as provide an easy way to apply for an email (i.e a registration form). This is just a project Tuqiri and I are using our spare time to create ^^.

>>38231
Thanks for the info, we're aware of that and will fix it soon.

>>38233
We'll look into it, thanks for the suggestion!

If anypony else has suggestions for features they'd like to see, or how we could make the site better, feel free to post!

>improve on the .org site's aesthetic as well as provide an easy way to apply for an email (i.e a registration form)
Why I made anypony.com, ha.
To improve on both the .com / .org and also another provider that shut down shortly after I reached 450 users. I personally think you should have chosen a different domain, too many derpymails.

derpymail.com has 5000 users and (as far as I know is the biggest brony email provider in users [I'm not sure about returning/active users]) he only stopped because he created every one of those accounts by himself, for very little thanks. Which you get used to, but it's kinda sad when you have so many users and the only contact they give you is "Your website is offline.. I really wanted to check my emails this morning as well." or "I forgot my password.."

>saging because I mentioned my website and I hate it when people bump my thread with links to their websites in it.

Website layout is nice though, I would have liked it to look a bit better on 1024x768 but only because I use that reso. haha

Please get permission from http://derpymail.com/

http://www.derpymail.org already stole his idea and the last thing I want is for my original .com account to vanish because he closes the site due to more theft of his intellectual property. He's a nice guy, too, and doesn't deserve what's been done to him.

>Hasbro, not derpymail, owns exclusive rights to MLP brand
>derpymail.com doesn't make new accounts anymore
>both are free, non-commercial, and volunteer-run
Seriously? You're upset over somepony else providing an alternative brony e-mail service because it mentions "derpymail"? And even IF derpymail.com did have good legal standing here (which they don't), it's not like any means were provided to contact him.
>setting up mail server takes time
>derpymail.org registered less than a week after derpymail.com
>derpymail.org STOLE idea from derpymail.com
Wat?
>worried he'll retire the server because another derpymail exists
If he shuts down derpymail.com it's because people haven't been grateful to him (coming from his own website) and he doesn't feel like running a mail server anymore. Not because somepony else creates yet another mail server. And if he'd really shut down 5,000 people's accounts just like that, then given the problems that would cause for his users he's probably not so nice of a guy as you're saying and you were better off with another e-mail provider from the start. Most popular e-mail admins would just pass the torch onto somepony else instead of taking down the server like that.
>> No. 39028
>>39025
>>39001
The admin of derpymail.com is a really nice guy and he was fed up with issuing derpymail accounts because of the lack of feedback, and that's his decision.

I have spoken (over email) with the admin of the .com and .org services and I believe it was shear coincidence they started at almost the same time. .com admin would never shut his site down, he said it was all about the service, and he wanted to provide the best service he could to his 5000 users as opposed to an "ok" service for 50 000.

Yes, derpymail.co.uk is ANOTHER derpymail, but there is nothing stopping them being one. They're not stealing an idea, because no-one (out of the admins) owns the right it in the first place.

The message derpymail.com had on his homepage a while ago about people stealing his ideas had NOTHING to do with derpymail, it was entirely un-related.

Setting up a mail server doesn't take time. It would have been possible for derpymail.org to make his website in pure jealousy of derpymail.com and have it running in a week. In fact, the way derpymail.org is built, he could have had it running from nothing (other than a server) in under a day + propagation

Steps have been taken to contact both the .org and .com owners to see if we could take over the running of their webservers and integrate them into one site. The .org owner seems to have disappeared and we're talking intermittently with the .com.

DerpyMail is now IMAP enabled!

Here's the details that you'll need to use POP/IMAP/SMTP :

IMAP:
Username: (Your email adress @derpymail.co.uk)
Password: (Your email password)
IMAP server: imap.derpymail.co.uk
Port: 143

POP3:
Username: (Your email adress @derpymail.co.uk)
Password: (Your email password)
IMAP server: pop.derpymail.co.uk
Port: 110

SMTP:
Username: (Your email adress @derpymail.co.uk)
Password: (Your email password)
IMAP server: smtp.derpymail.co.uk
Port: 25

If anypony has any further questions about using any of these, please post! ^.=.^

After a brief downtime (a day or so), DerpyMail is back up on a shiny new server!

In other news, DerpyMail now has an IRC chat!

Server: irc.derpymail.co.uk

Port: 6667

Channel: #derpymail

To use DerpyMail's IRC, you need an IRC client.
I recommend using Nettalk : http://www.ntalk.de/nettalk/en/

To register your chosen username, type "/ns register <password> <email>". A confirmation email with an enclosed unique code will be sent to your supplied email address, along with instructions.

To join DerpyMail's chatroom, type "/join #derpymail"!

Hi there!

We're currently working on a big update for derpymail that will include some needed features such as automated password resetting (as well as bug fixes and the like), but for now here's what you need to do:

Send an email containing your derpymail account name, email address, and the backup email address that you put in when you registered, to [email protected] . Within a few hours we'll send you a reply with the info you need to get back in ^^
>> No. 40686
Due to flaws in the code, security holes and due to it not being actively developed any more, we will not be using Atmail as an alternative mail client.

We will however be looking into other similar alternate mail clients to use.
