Change SquirrelMail to Roundcube (Perfect Ubuntu 10.04)
I have followed the "Perfect server Ubuntu 10.04 ISPconfig3" and it is working perfect, thank you Falko.
Now I wish to use Roundcube as webmail client instead of Squirrelmail. Are there any HowTo for this small action. I have looked in the forum but I cannot get the Roundcube to work at all therefor I need some help.

To start - should I use the apt to install roundcube? I tried that.

I believe that after you installed Roundcube you should only have to change the /var/www/webmail symbolic link from /usr/share/squirrelmail to /usr/share/roundcube. (Or the locations applicable to your setup.)

I replaced the webmail symlink with a small menu page that lets the user select between SquirrelMail, RoundCube or Horde. Seems to work well.

(Excuse me for my english)

Could you put the code of that small menu page?

Yes. Very simple, just links. mail_link_1 2 3 are symlinks that point to /usr/share/squirrelmail etc.
