Exclamation Support for other Webmail programs (HORDE)

Hi everyone,
as i read in the information considering the ispConfig tool currently only one webmail client is supported.

would it be possible to add a dir to every web so that every domain has it is own webmail interface.

It would be a great if horde could be a part of the ispconfig tool (or howto how to setup horde in combinationen with the tool).

Cheers
PM

I'll be trying to install Horde and IMP (if needed). If horde is just a normal script which relies on postfix, I don't see why we can't install it in each web users' directory if absolutely needed.

I am interested in IMP or Squirrelmail too,

I used to use it with other ISPconfig - like tools. I can install it, I'djust like to know how I can get a link into ISPconfig so one installation works for every domain/reseller/client - as far as I have seen, uebimiau works the same way? (only one installation for all?)

what is the easiest and best solution to get one install of squirrelmail working for every hosted domain?

I once saw a solution like :

Code:
<VirtualHost 1.2.3.4:80>
ServerName mail.mydomain.com
ServerAlias mail.*
ServerAdmin postmaster@mydomain.com
DocumentRoot /var/www/webmail
</VirtualHost>
but I had some problems with that. Should that generally work this way? Do I have to set it up manually or can one do that with ispconfig frontend?

Anyone already using another webmailer? how did you do it?

You can simply set up a web site in ISPConfig, like for example mail.provider.com, and in that web site you install your application (e.g. Squirrelmail). You can then share it with everybody by telling them the URL...

yes but it would be much better if any domain I am hosting would automatically have its own mail.domain.com I mean it would point to the same webmailer in fact but the links from every domain would work.

whats the most clean solution to do this?

Whenever you create a new web site you also create a sudomain mail.domain.com under Co-Domains and forward it to the webmailer.

ok, I tried it:

created a new site with mail.domain.de and forwarded mail.domain2.de to it via url but it is noit transparent: the url changes! and what about traffic? I have to set traffic limits for the mail. domain, sopplvisiting their webmailwon't get their trafficcounted...

please have a lookat my proposal further up: something like ServerAlias mail.*

I am trying to get it transparent but I am not an apache guru, anyone done it so far? I know I could set it up as an alias like this:

Code:
Alias /webmail /var/www/webmail

<Directory /var/www/webmail>
  php_flag register_globals off
  Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
  <IfModule mod_dir.c>
    DirectoryIndex index.php
  </IfModule>
</Directory>
but then it would be domain.de/webmail....

the problem with the manual setup of the mail.* example I gave was that it was catching all domains that were not explicitly set on my server, I think I saw a similar post here somewhere concerned about the order of virtualhosts...

I think I have to look that up again

In your httpd.conf, sometimes it's also called apache.conf or apache2.conf. Run
Code:
httpd -V
to find out where it is.
