email client for multi server setup using Debian Lenny
 
I have setup ISPConfig3 using the manual on 5 servers as per the instructions. Now I would like to setup an email client like RoundCube for my clients that will work with this type of setup.
I would like each client to be able to go to http://www.theirdomain.com/webmail to check their email.
Is there a How To that works with this type of multi server setup?

I think you have to install RoundCube on each server.

I followed the ISPConfig 3 owners manual that I downloaded here from this site. The part of the tutorial that I followed is:
Installing A Multiserver Setup With Dedicated Web, Email, DNS And MySQL Database Servers On Debian With ISPConfig 3.
In that tutorial you had me install postfix, postfix-mysql, postfix-doc, dovecot-imapd, dovecot-pop3d on a seperate email
server that is not on the webserver running ispconfig 3. I have 5 seperate physical boxes running each service.

:HERE IS MY SETUP:

webserver - apache, ispconfig

mailserver - postfix, postfix-mysql, postfix-doc, dovecot-imapd, dovecot-pop3d

database server - mysql

ns1 - bind9

ns2 - bind9 - mirroring ns1

What I would like to accomplish is to install RoundCube Mail so that each client can login to their own webmail from their own doamin
i.e. mydomain.com/webmail. I have read almost every tutorial on RoundCube and as far as I can tell they are all describing the
RoundCube installation going on the webserver which also runs the mail server in a single box and mine are seperated. I believe
I am supposed to install RoundCube on the web/ispconfig3 server then configure it to point to the mail server? I simply do not
know how to do this based on what I'm reading. If you could point me in the right direction that would be great :)

Thanks in advace

Flako I figured it out :)
I installed RounCube on a single website domain.
The biggest problem was with suhosin but that was solved using a .htaccess file in the site root and a custom php.ini also in the site root.
I needed to have the site using suPHP instead of fastcgi.
Then the pointer to the imap server I used my ip instead of my fqdn then I changed it and it worked. Then the smtp I had to use %u and %p and "LOGIN" once i did that it worked perfectly.

But what I noticed is that I can sign into that roundcube using any email account on my mail server. I would like to fix that. I would like if only the users in that domain can authenticate and not all users on the mail server. Do you have any suggestions on what I can do is there somthing in one of the tutorials that describes this that you can point me to?

Thanks again. :D

so, if you have 150 domains on the web server, u install 150 roundcube below every site root, to get http://www.domain-example.tld/webmail ?
I can't believe ;(

No, you just need to install it once and then create an alias in your Apache confguration.

maumar 5th October 2011 12:27

then, imho, in the multiserver howto i would add that, if ones need webmail, it should be installed on web server and how to do it, better with a link to the howto where it is explained

this is only a suggestion ;)
no polemize
