Little problems setting up the ISPConfig
 
Hello folks from Howtoforge!
It's my first post in here and i hope i'll find a solution quickly.

Here in Rio, i work for a web solution provider, as a network administrator. One day, our IMAP mail server has stopped by a hard disk crash [doh!] :mad: , lying unacessible, but i still have access to read the /postfix/ folder.

I tried to find any possible solutions to reinstall and migrate messages and MySQL databases/configurations to another machine, but i can't set up another machine to work correctly using mail.

Then i started fetching Google, seeking some "ready-to-go" installation scripts to quickly recover the mail service from our company, until i found Falko's homepage and started to read his Howtos.

After deciding which solution would be the best fit for my purposes, i chose The Perfect Setup using Fedora Core 4. Everything worked sucessfully pretty well. So i found the ISPConfig solution, downloaded it and installed it normally. Pretty fine and clean interface.

But, after all, i can't start up my mail server... [doh!!] :(

Now my little problems are:

1 - I need to create the Reseller, the clients and the site. How to set-up and configure the interface correctly, in order to start receiving and sending e-mails?

2 - Is it possible to migrate (e.g.: copy) all folders and messages from my damaged hard disk to this new one directly, after creating each mailbox for my users?

3 - I have to define another specific mailbox, using a different domain name (e.g: foobar.com instead of redlight.com). What are the steps to do it?

Guys, i need these answers as soon as possible. If you want to find me quickly, feel free to add me into your Msn: Luciano_areal@hotmail.com

Thanks a lot in advance! :D

As described in the documentation (http://www.ispconfig.org/documentation.htm). Create a reseller, then a client, and then a web site with users. The only thing you have to take care of is that you enable/disable Maildir under Management -> Server -> Settings -> Email, depending on your POP3 and IMAP server.

Should be possible if you preserve the file permissions. But if you use Maildir this will be a lot of work because each mail is in a separate file...

If I understand you right, then I would simply create another web site in ISPConfig for that domain and then create users for that web site.
