The Settings module allows to customise both the appearance and the behaviour of the modules. Configuration options are grouped in categories: General, Mails, Calendars, and Contacts.



Choose the size of the fonts and whether the Dark Mode is enabled or not.

Out Time Zone and Language

Select the language of the interface and the time zone used by Carbonio CE. If you change the language, you will be asked to reload the interface.

Out of Office Settings

These setting allow you to define the behaviour of Carbonio CE when e-mails are received within a time period during which you are not available. You can choose whether automatic replies are sent and to whom: you can also send a different message to people outside your organisation or decide to notify only your colleagues (i.e., people in your organisation).

Define also the time period during which you will be away. By default, an appointment that matches the time period is created on your calendar.

Application versions

Informative panel reporting the versions of Carbonio CE’s components.

User’s quota

Informative panel reporting how much of the assigned quota is used.


Click LOGOUT to exit the current session.


In this section you can add and configure other personas to the account, change some settings for the sent messages, and decide how to save messages in shared accounts.


The primary persona can not be deleted.


Displaying Messages

The options here control how the e-mails are displayed in the mailbox and how often to check for new emails (i.e., polling interval).

Other options allow to configure how to set the unsend time, that is, the interval before an e-mail is actually sent, allowing to stop the send process, whether to visualise e-mails by message or conversation, and which is the default query over e-mails, that is, which e-mails are shown upon logging in. By default, the query is in:inbox, meaning that all messages in the Inbox are displayed.

Receiving Messages

These settings define the response to incoming e-mails. Notification e-mails can be sent to a third party and different types of desktop notification can be combined (pop-ups, flashing browser title, highlight of mail tab, play a sound). Notification can be restricted to e-mail landing in the inbox or in all folders (in case you defined Filters, see further on).

Choose also where to store e-mails sent from yourself, whether to send automatic read receipts and if duplicate messages should be deleted.


Define signatures that can be appended to the e-mails that you write. Use the textarea to write a plain text or HTML (default) signature, assign a name to them and add to the library by clicking the ADD SIGNATURE button.

Signatures Usage

If, besides your primary e-mail addresses, you have aliases or can access shared accounts, you can associate to each of them a different signature. Whenever you create, forward, or reply to an e-mail, the correct associated signature will be added, according to the e-mail that you choose.


Filters determine how to move incoming or outgoing e-mails to folders within your inbox.

In the list of active filters, click CREATE to define a filter and, in the dialog that appears, configure the condition(s) that need to be matched, the action applied, and give the Filter a name. Filters are applied in a top-down fashion, so in case of multiple active rules, choose whether to stop processing other following filters.

When multiple rules are defined, only those among the Active Filters are used to process e-mails. Filters can be managed individually by selecting them and using the buttons << ADD (activate an available filter), REMOVE >> (disable an active filter), EDIT (modify a Filter), RUN (execute a Filter), and DELETE (remove a filter).

Trusted Addresses

Here you add e-mail addresses that will always be displayed.



General setting for Calendar allow to customise how the calendar and its events are displayed, how invitations are managed, and how remainders behave.

The calendar can be shown for the next Month, Day, Week, or Work Week, and it is also possible to choose which day would start the week (usually Sunday or Monday).

Appointments and invitation can be accepted automatically and the notification e-mail deleted.

Reminders can be set up in different way: by playing sounds, showing a popup or flashing the browser’s bar.

Work week

Define the times when your daily work week starts and ends.

Creating Appointments

You may select on which calendar events and appointments are created by default and if the time zone is shown when creating new appointments.

Apple iCal

Allow delegation for Apple iCal.


Configure access to free/busy information of appointments, which can be restricted to selected internal users, to configured domain(s), to everyone (i.e., internal and external users), or none.

Moreover, you can limit the users who can send you invitations.



You can define how to populate your Contacts and the behaviour of the autocomplete feature. New contacts can be added automatically, while the search for colleagues’ address can use the GAL by default.

Autocomplete can take advantage of the GAL and of shared contacts, while typing a , can be used as a shortcut to confirm the currently highlighted suggestion.


In this module you can change your current password and add one recovery address, that will be used for the password recovery.

To add a recovery address, you need to provide a valid e-mail address, to which a validation code will be sent. You need to enter this code before the recovery e-mail address is verified and can be used.


In this section you can configure a few options of the Carbonio Workstream Collaboration Module.


You can add an image, with size less than 512 kb, that will be used as your avatar.


Select whether to enable text and sound notifications in Chats and meetings (general) and Waiting Room.


Automatically enable microphone and webcam.
