Question How do you configure SquirrelMail with ISPConfig 3

I've just successfully setup a ISPConfig 3 vps server box and I want to test if the email feature is working as intended. So, i followed these instruction to install the SquirrelMail:

Quote:
apt-get install squirrelmail
ln -s /usr/share/squirrelmail/ /var/www/webmail

Access squirrelmail:

http://192.168.0.100/webmail

To configure squirrelmail, run:

/usr/sbin/squirrelmail-configure
I used the "squirrelmail-configure" and used the option "D" and set it to use the "courier" IMAP server. When I went to test the configuration like this :

http://69.162.xxx.xxx/webmail/src/configtest.php

it said "Congratulations, your SquirrelMail setup looks fine to me!".

So, I went to login with the email I created in the ISPConfig client section and i got the following error :-

Quote:
ERROR:
ERROR: Connection dropped by IMAP server.
On the ISPConfig service monitor, it shows that all service are online.

Can someone help me figure out how to properly configure SquirrelMail with ISPConfig 3 please?

- Thanks in advance

username:/# ls -la /etc/aliases*
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 77 Jan 2 15:12 /etc/aliases
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 12288 Jan 3 01:29 /etc/aliases.db
Quote:
username:/# ls -la /etc/postfix/aliases*
ls: /etc/postfix/aliases*: No such file or directory

Oh yea, come to think of it, when i was setting up the ISConfig according to the instruction manual, i was installing these packages :-

Quote:
apt-get install apache2 apache2.2-common apache2-doc apache2-mpm-prefork apache2-utils libexpat1 ssl-cert libapache2-mod-php5 php5 php5-common php5-gd php5-mysql php5-imap phpmyadmin php5-cli php5-cgi libapache2-mod-fcgid
on my debian VPS and this message popped up :-

http://i43.tinypic.com/micfmb.png

There was no mention of this on the manual, so i pressed ok on the "yes" choice since it was already selected by default.

Could this be why email isn't working properly for me?

Selecting yes was the correct choice. To install squirrelmail, run these commands:

apt-get install squirrelmail
ln -s /usr/share/squirrelmail/ /var/www/webmail

there is no further steps or configuration nescessary.

Never mind, i give up on this. I am going with OpenVZ with HyperVM and Lxadmin.

I will give up looking for free stuff. I come to a conclusion that nothing will beat paid software, even if it's DEAD CHEAP. I'd rather pay $10 / Month; than loose my time/effort and get angry and loose sleep over nothing.

Did you test this?
http://pve.proxmox.com

Is a very good openvz/kvm manager. In fact is what I use to create preconfigured ispconfig 3 machines.
