Ok, after I have buy subscription, I've downloaded manual of ISPconfig and I've discovered the ability to work between roundcube and ISPconfig.

So my last question, in the mail server I need Apache basic installation for run Roundcube, I need only to run "apt-get install apache2"?
Or apache2 need more dependecies to be installed? If yes what?

Thank you so much!

Why do you want to install roundcube on the mailserver instead of the webserver? As roundcube is a web app, it should be installed on the web and not the mailserver. Create a new website like webmail.yourdomain.com on the webserver and then install roundcube into that website. During roundcube setup you can instruct roundcube to connect to the mailserver.

Thank you Till for your reply
I want to install RoundCube on the mail server because:
- MySQL and PHP it's already installed for ISPconfig, so I need only Apache2
- Working over the lan between RoundCube (if installed on the WEB server) and Dovecot or Courier (installed on the MAIL server) slows net and both server, especially if many users move large quantity of emails (IMAP protocol)
- because so RoundCube work in localhost and don't generate any traffic
- last because I want that Roundcube site respond on the entire IP of mailserver, for example:
http://webmail.mailserver.tld/
http://pop3.mailserver.tld/
http://smtp.mailserver.tld/
http://imap.mailserver.tld/
http://www.mailserver.tld/
http://1921.68.0.X/

For install Apache2, I need only to run
Code:
apt-get install apache2
or Roundcube need more dependencies and other configuration of the system?

Another question: it's better Dovecot or Courier?

Thank you!

i get his idea, all in all id say that 'the pefect server' isn't anywhere neer perfect at all,

mostly its a thing that the TS has figured quite nicely, is that running a dedicated websevers isn't 'that golden egg att all in truth, i would sooner install a more complex setupt with a central database server and a replicated backup ...

than i would have either one or 2 mail servers with there one webmail front ends installed, they'd be running email for all hosted domains.

finaly i would run multiple webservers up front you would have a load balancer, that could be a professional one or something as simple as nginx running of an atom330.

all data ofcouce should than be stored on some kind of nas or san.

see there, the perfect webhosting (? rack ?) setup

Thank you Falko for your reply, that generate automatically other 2 question:
- why Courier instead Dovecot (only for my personal skills)?
- For install Apache2 in the mail server only for RoundCube, it need more dependencies? PHP and MySQL are installed by default for ISPconfig.

At I-Chat, your ideas are good, I think you must start with 2 ProxMox Server in cluster, and after with the dedicatet services on the host.

Bye thank you at all

ISPConfig can create email traffic statistics only if you use Courier.
