#2459 assigned enhancement

Susimail, remarks on the Web GUI.

Priority: minor Milestone: 0.9.40
Component: apps/susimail Version: 0.9.38

Parent Tickets: #2087 Sensitive: no

Description

  • .page: min-width: 800px;

This makes the lines in p.mailbody always too long, no matter how wide the browser window is. "A line has the correct length if the read flow is not interrupted too often and if the eye finds the next line without irritation when changing. (Otl Aicher in Typography, p. 149).

  • td: font-size: 9pt;

Affects p.mailbody. The font is much too small and by setting it to pt instead of a flexible size it can only be enlarged with losses through the web browser. I don't think it was intended to make life difficult for people with poor eyesight. In addition, a monitor resolution of 96 dpi should be regarded as a lower standard, my monitor, for example, is one for graphics processing and has a much higher resolution.

Basically, the selected specifications should support the user in his communication by means of typographic findings. The design should be based on this and not the other way around.

A note on the copyright line. From conversations in mailing lists I know that many users regard the date of the copyright as the date of the version and equate it with the state of development and thus with security.

A susimail.css adapted by me for clarification. From pt (for printers) to values that are relative to the user-defined font size. The font size displayed depends on the font size specified by the user in the web browser, handicapped accessible.

The adapted CSS as a whole for a quick installation to get a picture. I put the changes for discussion.

Supplement.
Holes in the text. In the e-mail view, the spaces in the text are stretched considerably: \u2003 ? PGP signatures can thus be destroyed (browser-dependent, use of own fonts, should be checked).
http://127.0.0.1:7657/susimail/?show=$AnyMail (replace AnyMail? with a mail that actually exists.)

Yesterday I had made two attempts to file an e-mail as a draft. This mail is untraceable. Update 21. March: After I had logged in again yesterday the drafts were suddenly there. I also have no idea where the e-mails are stored, whether locally with me or with the provider; I think there is a need for clarification here.

In general and especially under newmsg I miss the hint that e-mails should be signed/encrypted. (The majority of all users I have spoken to assume that the e-mails are automatically encrypted by themselves.)

The first time I call up a new e-mail, I receive the following message: "Part ((text/plain)) not shown, because of java.io.IOException: Stream Closed"

The background "linear-gradient" is not flush but divided in two. Fix:

@supports (text-justify: auto) { /* Firefox 55+ */

body {background-attachment: fixed !important;}

}
