Default Do I need squirrelmail for Outlook to work?

I had to disable squirrelmail in-order to get access to isp3 in browser. Do I need it to be enabled for Outlook to work? If so can you give me some ideas where to look for the problem? If not, then I am having another issue as Outlook will not setup to receive or send emails.

This is what I have without running squirrelmail

squirrelmail is not required to use email accounts with external mail clients like outlook or thudnerbird.

Btw, you dont have to disable squirrelmail to use ispconfig mail. I guess you just used a wrong alias for squirrelmail, the correct alias is /webmail while the wriong alias would be /mail. Edit the squirremail configuration file and set the alis to /webmail as described in the perfect setup guides.

This is what I had setup before and I have now reinstated squirrelmail and it is working without problems with isp3. But I am still unable to ping smtp.kustomhosting.net, I am not sure what is wrong and I am also unable to access webmail.kustomhosting.net And now my domains are going directly back to squirrelmail again, I disabled it again.

Code:
Alias /squirrelmail /usr/share/squirrelmail
Alias /webmail /usr/share/squirrelmail

<Directory /usr/share/squirrelmail>
  Options FollowSymLinks
  <IfModule mod_php5.c>
    AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
    php_flag magic_quotes_gpc Off
    php_flag track_vars On
    php_admin_flag allow_url_fopen Off
    php_value include_path .
    php_admin_value upload_tmp_dir /var/lib/squirrelmail/tmp
    php_admin_value open_basedir /usr/share/squirrelmail:/etc/squirrelmail:/var/lib/squirrelmail:/etc/hostname:/etc/mailname:/var/spool/squirrelmail
    php_flag register_globals off
  </IfModule>
  <IfModule mod_dir.c>
    DirectoryIndex index.php
  </IfModule>

  # access to configtest is limited by default to prevent information leak
  <Files configtest.php>
    order deny,allow
    deny from all
    allow from 127.0.0.1
  </Files>
</Directory>

# users will prefer a simple URL like http://webmail.example.com
<VirtualHost 91.121.156.14:80>
  DocumentRoot /usr/share/squirrelmail
  ServerName webmail.kustomhosting.net
</VirtualHost>

# redirect to https when available (thanks omen@descolada.dartmouth.edu)
#
#  Note: There are multiple ways to do this, and which one is suitable for
#  your site's configuration depends. Consult the apache documentation if
#  you're unsure, as this example might not work everywhere.
#
#<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
#  <IfModule mod_ssl.c>
#    <Location /squirrelmail>
#      RewriteEngine on
#      RewriteCond %{HTTPS} !^on$ [NC]
#      RewriteRule . https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI}  [L]
#    </Location>
#  </IfModule>
#</IfModule>

This is most likely adns problem and not related to email at all. Have you created dns A-Records for smtp.kustomhosting.net and webmail.kustomhosting.net that point to the IP address of your web server in the dns server that is authoritive for the zone kustomhosting.net

The reason for that is that you mixed IP address based vhosts with wildcard vhosts in apache. If you create a IP based vhostlke the one that you created in the squirrelmail configuration file, then all other vhsost on your server have to be ip based to. So you have to select the IP address and not * in all sites that you create in ispconfig.

This is correct for the smtp subdomain, but you dont have a webmail subdomain.

Did you enable smtp-auth in outlook and do you use the smae username and password then for imap?

Post the errors that you get in the mail.log.

This is the error and the setup
Code:
Send test e-mail message: Outlook cannot connect to your outgoing (SMTP) e-mail server. If you continue to receive this message, contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP).

Make sure that Postfix is running and that no firewall is blocking port 25.
