I have installed ISPConfig 3 on an Ubuntu 10.10 server via the HowToForge tutorial and everything looks good.
Ok I have to ask this since it seems to be the flourescent elephant in the room...
In ISPConfig2 you were able to login directly to ISPConfig via a mailuser interface /mailuser/login/index.php and were able to manage your e-mail settings e.g. password, autoresponder, forwarder, spamfilter and language.
Why on Gia's green earth does ISPConfig 3 NOT have this feature?! This just baffles the stew out of me... This actually would make this whole topic moot if it was included.
Apparently (following the forums) I need to setup the addon that lets users change their own passwords within webmail either Squirrelmail or Roundcube. I have read every howto on the subject and have tried to get the link/tab to work in the Options menu on Squirrelmail but all I seem to get is a link called acc_acc. It just doesn't look right at all. It seems that newer versions of ISPConfig and Squirrelmail sort of broke the addon since it is pretty old.
If I can get it to work in Squirrelmail I could move forward with this department e-mail project but this is simply a show stopper for me.
I wish to use this forum thread to streamline this procedure and make it actually understandable for n00bs to accomplish.
I think I am stuck at the
chown -R ???:??? ispconfig3
part. I put
chown -R www-data:ispconfig ispconfig3
and am still not quite sure what user needs ownership of this folder...
I found in the forums that an admin had three webmail clients running (not sure if users were able to change passwords) here: http://bytemenetworking.com/webmail/
I would like to see instructions on how this was done since all I found so far was how to replace squirrelmail with roundcube.
Can someone at least point me in the right direction?
