- Possibillity to save massages to HD (ideally by drag&drop)
Already there - check the menus (no d&d though). Iris can also automatically cache the messages in your folders onto your disk. Check Storage settings for the account.Quote:
- Possibility to load massages back from HD to a IRIS-folder (ideally drag&drop)
Well, there's no such thing as an IRIS-folder. Iris is an IMAP client, so the folder is on the server. Some servers allow uploading messages, but some will only restrict that to Drafts.
That said, you can *open* standard MIME and Outlook message files using the menu.Quote:
- to have the choise to load, delete or ignore messages direktly on provider-server like YAM does
That only makes sense with POP3 since you cannot comfortably browse messages on the server and there are no folders on the server side. And yes, things like deleting or setting read/unread flags are done directly on the server.Quote:
- to prevent deleting messages on server as presetting like YAM. I've access to that server from different locations and only one location should be able to delete on the server.
That's - again - a POP3 setting. With IMAP all clients see the same folder structure that's hosted on the server and actions like deleting or changing flags are then exposed to all clients. By default, POP3 is not supposed to be a shared resource but instead you're supposed to download all messages to your local machine - that's why the default is to delete them from the server (also due to performance, accessing POP3 with a large index isn't exactly fast).
While I'd like to be able to provide better support for POP3, Iris was designed to be an always-online IMAP client. Most people access their mailboxes from multiple computers/mobiles, right?
