AtMail is now available for webmail

Posted by kilbot | Filed under: Hosting News, News

Webmail users now have another option for reading and sending emails. We recently added AtMail Open Source to both the Australian and US servers. Use the login form on our homepage and take it for a test run!

Compose AtMail

This means you now have a choice of four (4!) webmail clients; AtMail, Horde, Roundcube and SquirrelMail.

Webmail Options

Speaking of Roundcube (my personal favourite) … this has recently been updated to version 0.6. The latest release includes an improved Address Book, better file uploading for attachments and many other stability and UI improvements.

What’s your favourite webmail client? Let us know in the comments!

New Kilbot logo

Posted by kilbot | Filed under: News

We’re moving towards a new design and exciting new features for kilbot.com.au, finally! I hear you say … and quite rightly, this website has not presented the true range of our services from some time.

As we head towards the launch of our redesign I will be releasing sneak peaks and progress reports. So, without further ado, I am super excited to introduce the new spokesbot for all things Kilbot! Designed by the very talented Alex Kohler.

What do you think of the little guy? We’d love to hear your feedback in the comments!

Kilbot Labs

Posted by kilbot | Filed under: News

Work has commenced on a long much needed refresh to the Kilbot Factory website. I don’t have a timeframe for completion just yet – those clients I am currently working with will know my schedule is already overflowing – however, I will make sections of the new site available for testing as soon as they as available.

One such section is kilbot labs, a sandbox where I will be testing code snippets and giving examples of current best practices in web development. If you have an interest in web development please take a look at the various lab articles and join the discussion in the comments section!
