Extra notes regarding Release Notes July 2022

  • Announcement: Google only provides access to its POP and IMAP servers through verified applications. In case of cloud applications, this includes obtaining a letter of assessment from Google empanelled security assessors on an annual basis – price of which is simply out of reach for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). Therefore, we have dropped support of POP/IMAP (external address) connections to Google servers.

  • Frontend release 2.8.008.
  • PWA release 1.1.020.
