How much does webmail impact Disroot's servers?

I sent an email but then I found the forum.

  • Does using Webmail impact your server?
  • Does creating filters impact your servers?

I know that is stupid but I wanted to know how much does that impact your servers? I don’t have a permanent device so I use Webmail most of the time but if that has a huge impact then I will avoid using Webmail!

Everything impacts the servers. But i wouldnt worry. Webmail is very lightweight so its impact is minimal.
As for filters.
Every filter creates sperate connection to email server. We do have a limitations of 20 connections per user per IP address. So no worries either.

I didn’t understand this.

Every filter creates sperate connection to email server. We do have a limitations of 20 connections per user per IP address.

Does that mean a user cannot create more than 20 filters?

connections means…? Including css, js, html, images? I don’t know about the backend… Is that about the backend system?

My understanding of how filters work

Mail arrives > Disroot receives it > RainLoop says move it to this folder because the user has set a filter (works in backend) > Mail is moved to another folder

Correct me if I am wrong.

By connection i mean connection to mail server. Each filter is one connection. Each webmail instance is one connection too (its about imap connections to mail server so css, js etc is not included because it never makes connection to mail server)

1.Mail arrives to mail server
2. sieve server (responsible for managing filters) connects to mail server to check how to handle the email
3. sieve server requests what to do with email (move it forward etc)
4. Rainloop only displays the result

The restriction is on number of filters or webmail tabs open on the same machine. Though the connection made is only for duration of action eg. displaying email or committing any other action (periodic new email check, sending email, etc). Keeping the tab open whe not doing anything does not create permanent connection.
