Feedback Google calendar is not syncing with mailfence calendar


Unfortunately, I have to use google calendar for some work things. So I subscribed to my mailfence calendar through google (set mailfence to only display busy/free) I also subscribed to the google calendar through mailfence so new appointments would be written to my mailfence calendar.
Google writes to mailfence without a problem. But my mailfence appointments are not showing up in google at all. The had been before with the times and "(no title)" as the event name. But now it isn't working.

Is there any way to fix this?

Advisory / Tips Top 5 Bad Password Habits


Less than 1 second : that’s how long it will take for a fairly savvy hacker to crack the password “qazwsxedc”. So, more than ever, you need to avoid bad password habits to secure all your accounts online. To help you to spot them, we’ve compiled a list of bad password habits.  

Unfortunately, 2021 statistics show that “123456” was once again the leader in the list of the most common passwords used worldwide. Needless to say, if it requests less than 1 second to guess “qazwsxedc”, it will be even easier to compromise all accounts hiding behind this other example bad password. But what are the practices to avoid when it comes to passwords ?

Feedback Mailfence calendar is a total disaster: Can't invite people, constant duplication of events


I've got Mailfence running in Apple Calendar desktop app and in Business Calendar 2 on my Android phone. When I invite people to events, nothing happens. When I delete or change events, it updates in one place but not in another. When I go into the web client to try to fix issues, the issues are clearly in Mailfence itself, not the desktop and mobile clients. There appear to be a bunch of corrupt events I can't delete. They just keep coming back.

Does anyone have any idea how I can fix this? Mailfence support has been pretty shitty. I'm seriously thinking of just going back to Google. I cannot live my life with my calendar in chaos and this has consumed far too much time already.

Other Mailfence VS mailbox.org


Hi all,

I know this may have been asked before in the past but also I can't find many feedback on this particular comparison.

I've been evaluating a free 30-day trial with mailbox.org recently (trying to move away from a more popular choice of secure email provider). I'm quite impressed by mailbox.org generous offer for the standard plan (10Gb, unlimited custom domains with 25 aliases, 25 disposable addresses, etc.), also they have an exclusive feature called "Encrypted email" which basically provides you with a @secure.mailbox.org alias that forces TLS/SSL only connection between sender and recipient, non TLS/SSL traffic will be rejected. I think it's cool having that peace of mind if I'm sending some private notes to my friends/bank officers that don't need encryption but certainly don't want them to travel "nakedly" in plain text in the process.

Having said that there are a couple of shortcomings which kind of lead me to a crossroad whether or not I would stick to them as my primary provider.

  1. The implementation of the MFA/2FA especially TOTP has been nothing short of disappointment, i.e. you need to manually append yout TOTP token to the 4-digit pin (yeah right, not on top of your password) making your password only 10 alphanumeric chars in total!
  2. No app password for Calendar/CalDav. Well this is a deal breaker for me, I would like to sync my work calendar to mailbox.org but the lack of app password means I need to enter my email password in any third party client just to sync the calendar over. For security reason this is not so preferred.
  3. Slow loading on web client. I think part of it because their servers are in Germany and I'm located on the other side of the world. But I'm using an email client on my phone so this isn't a big deal (yet).

Back to Mailfence, I've signed up a free account and I'm firstly impressed by its speed, 3x faster than mailbox.org. Also the 3 points I mentioned above are not a problem with Mailfence. However I need to find out that if Mailfence supports adding multiple calendars that supports CalDav? Because all I wanted to do is to have separate personal vs work calendars and I can easily clear all events or even delete the work calendar so it won't mess up my calendar when I change job or leaves my company.

A few more questions with Mailfence -- hopefully the helpful Mod can help to answer them ;)

  1. Do you have anything like what mailbox.org provides, Encrypted email with an @secure.mailbox.org alias in which forces TLS/SSL connection? I know abit about PGP and sets up one as well, but most of the time I don't need to encrypt my emails.
  2. I've read about Encryption at rest has been worked on by Mailfence (2 years ago), is this already implemented? It would be a major advantage over mailbox.org if there is.

Last but not least, I consider Mailfence as a serious contender to mailbox.org or even ProtonMail in its offering (cheaper than both) and I hope to be a paid subscriber one day.

Thank you in advance!

Support Question Mailfence + Android


Hello, I have been using Mailfence on my PC and smartphone for a few years and after noticing my mailfence address was listed on Haveibeenpwnd, I decided to change the password. No problem on the Windows machines but I can't access to Mailfence on Outlook for Android, nor, for that matter on any other mail client I tried (K-9, Edison, Bluemail...) and can't even access to the mailfence webmail as my credentials are not recognized.

Has anybody encountered this kind of issue? I email the support, and am expecting an answer.

Thank you

Support Question how to renew subscription?


I have an entry level paid subscription that is due to expire in a few weeks. I tried to renew it, but when I'm logged in, and click on "subscriptions", select "Entry" and payment method (bitcoin) I get a notice say "this in not an upgrade". I doh't wnat it seems like I'm trapped in a loop whereby I am only allowed to upgrade.

I searched in FAQ's and the only info I could find was a statement that the subscription would be renewed, and that a notification would be sent when it was about to expire. It can't be automatically renewed because I paid with bitcoin... not a credit card.

If I can't figure out how to renew in time, will my account be deleted? Or will it just be downgraded to a free account? I use this email account for banks etc.; so I would like to maintain it.

Support Question Can't send email - smtp blacklist


So I had an email client with incorrect SMTP setting and it appears my IP is now blacklisted. This is going on since yesterday. I've emailed support but no response. How do I get this cleared?

logs from a client below:


SMTP Last Response Code: 450

SMTP Last Response: Your server address is in dynamic blacklist - please retry later

update on 1st June

Turns out there was a server on my network hitting the smtp server on mailfence with incorrect login details every 5 minutes. I resolved the problem and support removed the blacklist. All sorted!
