Very basic, e-mail question
 
So I have a domain from dyn dns http://patrickmcdougle.is-a-geek.com and I have the ISPconfig for websites and ftp down...now how do I do e-mail?

I want to be able to type http://patrickmcdougle.is-a-geek.com/webmail and be able to login and receive e-mail. What are the steps in the ISP config web interface that I need to do to make this happen? I want one e-mail address to be webmaster@patrickmcdougle.is-a-geek.com, so use that in your example.

1) Go to the email module and create a email domain patrickmcdougle.is-a-geek.com
2) Create a mailbox for webmaster@patrickmcdougle.is-a-geek.com
3) Go to the website module and create a website patrickmcdougle.is-a-geek.com.
4) create a subdirectory "webmail" in this website and install there a webmail application of your choice.

Please be aware that almost all external servers will block your system for sending email as it has a dynamic IP address. So you might have to configure postfix to relay any outgoing mails trough a external mailserver.

Try to install the webmail application in /var/www/webmail and use this plugin

That is the kind of thing that I was looking for...I already had squirrelmail installed and wondered why it didn't work
