Message Priority - what's the Enabled checkbox for?
Question asked by kevind - 7/29/2015 at 2:29 PM
Hello, here's a usability question and possible improvement...
Under Settings -> Defaults -> Domain Defaults -> Priority tab, every type of message has an 'Enabled' checkbox.  My question is why?  I looked in the help and didn't see any explanation of how this box is used.
My guess is that you need to check it in order for it to work. But that seems counter-intuitive.  For example, under the Limits tab, there's no 'Enabled' check box for Disk Space, Aliases, Users, etc.  The settings just work based on the number that's there.
Unless I'm missing something, my suggestion would be to get rid of these Enabled checkboxes.  Or put the checkboxes before the setting and dim the value unless it's Enabled.  At a minimum, update the Help to say what they're for and how to use them.

I would also like to know the answer to what the "enabled" check box is for.

This function appears to work sporadically for me and I and others have asked for a revamp of Mail Priority's, but it has not come yet.

Hi guys,
The Enabled checkbox allows you to enable a different priority than the default. However, I do agree that they may be a bit unnecessary. That said, things are a bit different in SmarterMail 16.x with the priority and how items are displayed, so this won't be an issue in future versions.
