SOGo App

Like other email clients like rainloop or roundcube, SOGo only works with mailbox accounts on the Cloudron. Login using the full email address including the domain as the username.

Email

SOGo is setup out of the box as an email client for Cloudron for all mailboxes on the Cloudron.

By default the full name for sending out emails is currently prefilled with the email address. Adjusting this to the real name, can be done by editing the IMAP account under Preferences -> Mail:

External domains

The SOGo app does not support adding domains that are not managed in Cloudron. Consider using the rainloop app as an alternative.

Sieve Scripts

SOGo UI only supports setting up a limited set of filtering rules. You can setup more advanced rules using the Rainloop or Roundcube app.

CalDAV

SOGo supports syncing using CalDAV:

Clicking on the 'ribbon' next to the calendar shows a popup menu.

Clicking on Links to this Calendar will show the calendar settings for various clients.

Calendar URLs

CalDAV URL - https://sogo.domain.com/SOGo/dav//Calendar/personal/
Wedav ICS URL - https://sogo.domain.com/SOGo/dav//Calendar/personal.ics
WebDAV XML URL - https://sogo.domain.com/SOGo/dav//Calendar/personal.xml

CardDAV

Clicking on the 'ribbon' next to the address book shows a popup menu.

Clicking on Links to this Address book will show the address book settings for various clients.

Address book URLs

CardDAV URL - https://sogo.domain.com/SOGo/dav//Contacts/personal/

Setting the timezone

Open a Web terminal for SOGo:

  • Edit /app/data/sogo.conf and set the SOGoTimeZone field to a value from https://github.com/inverse-inc/sogo/tree/master/SOPE/NGCards/TimeZones

  • Restart SOGo

ActiveSync

Exchange ActiveSync is a protocol used by Microsoft Exchange to sync mobile devices. The Cloudron SOGo app does not support ActiveSync. It only supports clients that use IMAP/SMTP/CardDAV/CalDAV.

UI Issues

SOGo behaves differently depending on how you access the app. If you navigate to SOGo by clicking on the icon on your Cloudron dashboard, parts of the SOGo UI do not work.

This issue manifests itself as:

  • Email delete button not working
  • Compose email popup not closing. Sometimes, it ends up closing the tab itself.
  • The browser's web inspector console displays a DOMException with the message "Permission denied to access property \"$mailboxController\" on cross-origin object".

To workaround this, always use SOGo by opening a new browser tab and entering the SOGo domain name directly.
