CubMail Gets A Facelift

Written by

CubMail got a makeover today, but not the part you’re thinking about. Its home page has a new design that is “more in line with the style of the new University home page,” which should officially roll out later this week. The new login screen features some smooth transitions and glows, and when you type in your UNI, your name and basic directory info show up, just in case you were in the middle of an existential crisis. But once you log in, you’re greeted with the same familiar CubMail interface you’ve come to know and… well, know. We encourage everyone who actually knew about this redesign before this post to join us where the grass is greener. After all, the real news here is that people still use CubMail.

Here’s a side-by-side comparison of the new and old designs, for nostalgia’s sake.

    I don't get why Columbia can't just download an open-source webmail interface like Atmail or Roundcube.

  5. UNPOPULAR OPINION

    The new website is so horrible. I expected something fresh and modern. You wanna see a good-looking academic website?

      Agreed. It's old school and boring and the font is gross! There has to be like 9823 student web designers here with better skillz than the professionals they're hiring, amirite?

  6. I like  

    how when I type my UNI in, it welcomes me by name! Also, if you type a random UNI in, it will give you the first and last name of whoever has that uni. A useful stalking device...
