Xnet have changed their webmail interface

I'd like to know why since imho it is inferior to what was there previously Frown

For example the new version unlike the old one does not allow me to report spam, it also unlike the old version it does not allow me to choose the sender address etc

One would think WxC would also take the oppertunity if making a change to make it secure ie https

I logged a ticket via email Sat and haven't had a reply other than the automated response. I called just now and got the msg that call volumes are heavy [it is lunch time] 
Fortunately the old version is still available but I'm not sure for how long...

Does anyone else use Xnet webmail and or got answers ?

Thoughts ?

I logged in to it the other day usual I just use Live Mail but I quite liked the interface over the old one.  The old one was kind of clunky IMHO.

I have not had much luck with emailing the service desk with incidents so usually ring.  In saying that they still dont get back to you with call resolution or seeking feedback if the resolution has met your needs.  Though I do like it that htey have technical people on the line and nto someon from manilia reading a script

Just like Vodafone/Ihug and others, Xnet are now using Roundcube.

IMO, Roundcube is an excellent web client, very customisable - and it is open source. Used to use it on my domain but now use Gmail.
