    Hey All,

    I am just playing around with various webmail scripts and was just wondering if anybody has tried and/or successfully installed BlueMamba webmail onto their server...

    BlueMamba is an open source webmail package, but they do not supply any instructions for install and configuring it. They do however charge $60 an hour to setup and customise BlueMamba... hmmm :eek:

    I've tried the obivous things such as modifying settings like smtp server in the files within the 'conf' folder. The login screen loads up but as soon as you enter some details to test it goes to a blank page.

    Any ideas anyone?

    Also i found that the login page submits to:

    <form method="post" action="">
    I don't know where the form is meant to submit the details to though...

    Did you check Apache's error log (and maybe also the mail log)?

    Hi! My name is Travis and I am the creator of BlueMamba.

    The form needs to be submitted to where you have webmail residing. On our setup we use an alias for webmail. Point the alias to the BlueMamba's "source/" directory. This is to keep the config and include files from being public. Add a similar line into your Apache config.
    Alias /webmail /path/to/webmail/source

    Your form should point to:

    The alternative to this is to publicly link to the source directory. In that case your form should point to:

    Here's a rough install outline I posted a while ago.

    I am currently working on the next version, which will get away from the current directory structure. Its confusing to many people. Also the new version will have configurations for this form link per each theme.

    Please feel free to email support at bluemamba for any comments or questions.

    Hi BlueMamba!

    Thanks for your explanation. I fear I need some more support. I've been trying very hard to set up BlueMamba on my server for hours now. But I don't get further then the login page, which is always displayed agian, with emptied fields after pressing login.

    So, what I would need is an "install outline" as you linked above. Only, the link is dead. So I cannot access the install guide anymore.

    If you still have what you wrote there, can you post it here or on the sourceforge support page of BlueMamba?
