The ISPConfig mail module is a replacement for postfixadmin, so this does not make any sense for me. Thats as if you ask to integrate mozilla firefox into internet explorer.

then ISPConfig is not installed correctly on your system or you installed ispconfig on a system were you had setup an incompatible mailsystem before without reinstalling the operating system.

ISPConfig uses mysql as database for the mailserver. Just install ispconfig 3 as described in the perfect server guide for ISPConfig 3 and you can configure your complete mailserver with it. Make sure that the server is empty and not configured before you install ispconfig (see the guide for details).

Then you have to migrate your accounts to ispconfig if you want to use ispconfig.

ISPConfig is not made for managing the postfixadmin database and postfixadmin is not made to manage the ispconfig database. Same as you can not use postfixadmin to manage a microsoft excghange server etc. If you want to use a controlpanel you will have to install your server as described in the instructions for this controlpanel and not as described in instructions for a complete different software.

And ISPConfig uses postfix, courier and mysql qiwth multiple servers. As dovecot uses maildir too, the format of the mail store is widely identical and can be migrated by simply copying the files. Future ISPConfig versions will support dovecot too.

Then dont use it if you dont like to migrate your mailservers.

Default Not hard.

You can write a routine to migrate from postfixadmin to ispconfig3 you just need ispconfig3 database diagram.

And a method to store mail user at ispconfig database.

Im migrated from postfixadmin 2 to 3 and write a php cli script to do it not hard to make it.

Passwords are encoded by crypt you need see encode password at ispconfig is the same or not.

if ispconfig uses Maildir like postfixadmin mail data can be pass easy.

Im have postfixadmin database schema at debian, i need be the same. Im looking ispconfig 3 finish trafic information to migrate to it.

Probably i will be aventure a stable server with SVN version. =D

Im looking code now to learning, but started translating to brazilian portuguese first.
