    To whom it may concern,
    how can I set automatic archiving of mails, especially older messages in the inbox.
    your urgent reply would be highly appreciated.
    Kind regards

    What if an Archive folder does not show up at all? Is there a setting missing or something?

  3. Stephen Johnson says:

    Is Roundcube Automated Archiving an app that runs on my computer? How much does it cost? Thank you.

    Not sure why this feature is called Automated Email Archiving. All of these methods are rather “manual”. It’s nice that there are buttons and all, but automated implies you set it (to once a week, once a month, etc.) and forget it. Because it’s automated, see?

    Also for other users, Roundcube has a setting under Preferences/Special Folders that let’s you select how the “Archive” folder is organized. Choices are None, Year, Month, Sender Email, and Original Folder.

      Completely agree with @JoeW. This feature is not “automated” at all — but that function is exactly what is needed, and not available.

    I have a customer along with his associates in their company emails going straight to Archives. i do not want this. How do i set it so they automatically go straight to inbox?

      Greetings from InterServer Support.

      Normally default ssl will cover roundcube. Please try with “” to access roundcube.

      Wish you a great day ahead.
