Touch Interface

Rainmail Webmail by default is designed as a Desktop application. This means that features can be made of using

  1. Right click (for context menus) on selected items,
  2. Shift / Ctrl key for multiple selection
While this is very efficient in a desktop environment, some of the above keys are not present in many touch devices (like Tablets, IPad, IPhone, etc.). To make Rainmail Webmail usable even in such devices, a Touch interface is provided. Once enabled, this feature is especially suited for touchscreen device users and facilitates smooth and easy navigation in the Rainmail Webmail interface. 

The touch interface is not enabled by default. 


To enable this option:

  1. Login to Rainmail Webmail and click on Settings (indicated by the red oval)

  1. The Settings screen appears. Click on the Email tab (indicated by the red oval)
