Hi Mirko,

well, you do have a point. But I'm always surprised about I many people
are not using mail clients and are relaying on web frontends.
It's definitely nothing with priority. And the gui is very well usable
even if my suggestions are not added.

Adding and editing of vacation messages is possible right now. SOGo is,
if I'm correct, only creating a sieve script. You can install the TB
addon "Sieve" to edit your sieve scripts. Of course, the managesieve
protocol has to be accessible from outside, some configurations on your
firewall might be needed.
On the other hand - it's really not user-friendly. No normal user will
start scripting just to enable vacation messages. :-)

Sharing of mailboxes should be possible with the addon
"imap-acl-extensions", I guess?
