Now that Kolab 3 is released, it's time to gather some feedback as well. Many of you have installed Kolab 3, and it's time for you to participate!
I'm going to start off with an easy one, but before I do so, please allow me to provide you with some rationale. First, please allow me to take a minute of your time to have you read chapter 3.1 of our Administrator Guide - you can stop once you hit section 3.1.1.
I personally think the recipient policy is a very powerful feature, and I therefore wanted to show this off with any given installation - so I've provided defaults that apply this policy in one of the many ways that it is possible.
Now, I understand that many of you have no purpose for this feature, and that many of you want it changed. We've received questions, and complaints (each of these is to be taken as a compliment, or in the case of Kolab Systems -whom I work for- a sales opportunity). We've provided you with documentation on the why, and the how (to change the behaviour), and the how (to completely disable this feature). We've received enhancement requests to allow this powerful feature to be applied to a user's 'uid' attribute value, too.
So now is the time to gather some of your feedback, and see if we can improve the defaults for the use-cases you have, and the way you think the recipient policy could be improved. I'm hereby inviting you to do so; send me a direct email at email@example.com, stating;
Perhaps stating the obvious but nonetheless worth mentioning: Your sending such feedback to my personal address, and not my professional address. I'll treat it confidentially, and so rest assured that Kolab Systems is not going to take the email you send as a sales opportunity nor that you've opted in to a marketing scheme - I won't allow it, not without your explicit prior consent.
That said, please do know that you have Kolab Systems to thank for most -not to say all- of the work that has gone in to Kolab 3. If you wanted to leave a "thank you" note, I suppose firstname.lastname@example.org is the place to do so! This will most likely sollicit a response though, mind you ;-)
