Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier, MySQL And SquirrelMail (CentOS 6.2 x
 
Hello,
Thank you for a really useful guide!

I'm wondering what changes would be needed to use ViMbAdmin(PostfixAdmin replacement) to administrate mail server created in this guide?

On https://github.com/opensolutions/ViM...QL-Integration I've found general instructions for the integration.

I suppose in ViMbAdmin integration guide that mail store is Maildir or mbox, not the mysql database. Correct?

Finally, is ISPConfig3 better solution than ViMbAdmin in this case?

I can't say anything about ViMbAdmin, but ISPConfig won't work with this setup. You must set up your server according to one of these guides: http://www.ispconfig.org/ispconfig-3/documentation/

Since there's similar guide with PostfixAdmin, do you maybe plan one with ViMbAdmin? I'll be happy to help.

In ViMbAdmin there are only those MySQL mappings:

virtual_alias_maps = mysql:/etc/postfix/mysql/virtual_alias_maps.cf
virtual_mailbox_domains = mysql:/etc/postfix/mysql/virtual_domains_maps.cf
virtual_mailbox_maps = mysql:/etc/postfix/mysql/virtual_mailbox_maps.cf

Database is created during installation, and differs slightly from one in your guide:

+---------------------+
| Tables_in_vimbadmin |
+---------------------+
| admin |
| alias |
| config |
| domain |
| domain_admin |
| log |
| mailbox |
| token |
+---------------------+

i.e.

domains -> domain
forwardings -> alias
users -> mailbox

You noted transport table is optional, so we can ignore it.

For mysql-virtual_mailbox_limit_maps.cf there is 'quota' in mailbox table.

Looks like it's only mappings file names and postfix configuration part(postconf -e) change needed.

What do you think?
