Is there any chance that plugins could be developed for mail clients other than Outlook? We're specifically interested in a plugin for http://www.cyrusoft.com/mulberry, but I'm sure others would be welcome, especially in environments like academia and ISP usage where configurations can't be mandated and enforced.-Mark

Other plugins are planned, and will be prioritized for development based on customer demand.Yes, the mark.cgi script is how the classification occurs. That API is not planned to be documented for the general public. If you wish to develop a plugin please contact support.- Chris

I have about 3000 users, 90% of which use thunderbird. Does that count as 3000 customer demands, or only 1 because I have 1 Barracuda ? :).

Depends on if we are considering your view or ours. :)I haven't had a chance to look at mozilla based stuff much (although I am typing this on firefox) ... do you know if they all use the same plugin architecture?- Chris

Well, i'm the customer, so I'm always right! :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: As to APIs for thunderbird & mozilla, Its pretty similar, though not identical. The chrome would require a little bit of porting, but my guess is that the differences would be minor. Its too bad that for a company whose product is entirely based on open source technology, Barracuda doesn't feel the need to allow other coders to interface effectivly with their product by publishing an API for this.We all know that there just isn't the business case for you guys to support plugins for some of the smaller clients out there like Mulberry or Pine or Emacs, but publishing an API while still prooducing the native plugins for the larger clients would enable your customers to build whatever we needed.

Count this as a request for an Outlook Express plugin, that's what a large portion of our customers use.Speaking of the API script, it would be nice to be able to put a textbox somewhere on our website where a user could copy & paste the headers and message content, then submit it to the Barracuda from there, sort of like the reporting feature at spamcop.net.For that matter, how about the ability to have the Barracuda submit spams to spamcop?

mcowger ... if you want to develop a plugin contact support, you can get the the documentation for what you want. I am not about to get into a philisophical debate on the merits of publishing that material to all- Chris

Well I for one can see the danger, if that API made it into public domain, spammers would find a way to use it to whitelist themselves or at least corrupt the validity of the "spam/not spam" data. You probably need to require signing of a nondisclosure agreement before letting it out to anybody.

Consider this an official request for a GroupWise (6.5) plugin. It would be VERY helpful for our organization. In fact, I may call Barracuda and inquire about writing it; that is, unless they've already started writing one or have plans to do so soon.
