Am contemplating putting my hand up to do some work around the 'webmail' component for Koozali.

If we have a closer look at webmail included with Koozali, we find this:

https://wiki.koozali.org/SME_Server:Documentation:User_Manual:Chapter4

This is based on the Horde/Imp webmail client.  Screenshots have a strong ..uhm.. Netscape Navigator vibe.
touché
as you are wiki and doc member you are able to update those snapshot with last horde 5, if you have not enough privileges for the manuel it self you could still upload an update of each image on its own page


I have been using the Roundcube contrib on SME 9.x for some time and it has never let me down.  Big fan.

...

Am having a look here next:

https://wiki.koozali.org/RoundCube#For_Kooozali_SME10

Question #1:
  Are there specific considerations around Horde as the chosen default webmail client over something like Roundcube e.g. is it desirable for Roundcube to remain a contrib?

Question #2:
  I am planning on taking a near perfect basic Koozali 10.x contrib that uses a MySQL database and am RPM from Remi and use that to rewrite 9.x smeserver-roundcube contrib.  Does anyone have any pointers what needs to happen for php-fpm?  Is there a contrib that uses php-fpm I can use as a template for smeserver-roundcube?

Disclaimer: I am like an elephant in a porcelain cabinet.  I would recommend to just respond with "this is a bad idea" and not encourage me.
sorry not to stop you but ...

Please just go, but first read the bugs https://wiki.koozali.org/RoundCube#Bugs

and particularly http://bugs.contribs.org/show_bug.cgi?id=11430 and http://bugs.contribs.org/show_bug.cgi?id=11481

an issue with remi from my long term memory is it was needing both remi and remi-safe rpm.
remi repo are rpm that conflict with base centos ... which we usually want to avoid, and starting with one or two rpm from there could end with half of the distro updated.
but I was not the one activelly working on it and Brian and John might be of more help there

also John might suggest also to join on rocket chat for some real time discussion.
