We have worked hard on upgrading our email server park to accommodate all our new customers — and things will only get better: Based on our recent success, our shareholders decided to invest fresh capital to start several new projects that will take Runbox to the next level.
To boost IMAP performance and improve the experience especially for iPhone and iPad users we will soon deploy new Dovecot-based IMAP software.
We have started implementing an SSD (Solid-state Drive) based storage strategy to dramatically improve the performance of our email storage units. SSDs are up to 100 times faster than regular, rotating disks, so this will improve the speed of our IMAP services.
We are also expanding our server park with new servers and upgrades to continue improving reliability and overall performance.
We will continue working hard to ensure the privacy and security of your data, and have the following projects lined up for next year:
- Implementation of two-factor authentication for improved login security.
- Integration of PGP email encryption with our Webmail in order to make PGP easier to use with Runbox (note that you can already use PGP in your email client).
- Improvements and upgrades to our spam servers and software to keep up with the ever-present spam challenge.
- Implementation of a CalDAV server for calendar synchronization.
We look forward to continue providing great email services in the year to come.
