in the current (to-be-released-really-soon-now) version there are
error/status messages for login/sending/... (including html5 upload

In the future you will be able to set the verbosity of status/error
messages ('login failed', 'login failed: server said <foo>', 'login
failed: full debug output').

those will be fixed in the future - getting a decent
preferences/settings system in place is on my todo list.

if your users login with user at domain.com as their username you can set

    username_default_address to true

in your ciderwebmail configuration. this will use the username as
default from: address.

other than that - how would you like to set the from address? some
external lookup? script to insert into the settings and/or pre-create

I am planning a multiple-identities thing so you can setup various
from/reply-to/name combinations and choose from them when composing
mails. it should be simple enough to provide a way to lookup things
like that in a database/ldap server/...

currently we use Catalyst's default log handler - clearly this is not
sufficient... replacing it with something more advanced should be
trivial - I'm going to take a look at this later today.
