    just a small mail problem ;-)

    when I create an user and want to use his new mail account in a webmailer like roundcube I'll not find any folder except a Inbox. The others like "Sent" and "Trash" arn't there.

    So if I want to delete an eMail right now it willn ot work because of the missed folder.

    I noticed if I use Mozilla Thunderbird or Outlook as client they will create the missed folder and everything is fine.

    My question now is how to let my ISPconfig Server create those folders right after creating an eMail user?

    I want to have a Inbox, Sent, and Trash.

    Thanks for helping!!!!

    RoundCube will create the sent folder after you have sent the email.

    But my problem is I can't delete an email in RoundCuble. I can't move the email to Trash. Anyone knows how to fix the problem?

    Did you try dragging and dropping it into the trash can?

    There is no "Trash" folder in a new install of Roundcube, we should create it ourselves.

    I've just done a test, and created a new user in ISPconfig.
    When the new users logsin on Round Cube, he does have a Trash folder!

    Did you use Hans his howto? (

    If so did you change the needed settings in the ""
    // display these folders separately in the mailbox list
    $rcmail_config['default_imap_folders'] = array('INBOX''Drafts''Sent''Junk''Trash');

    So how about the names of the folders? Can I change their names to my language ?

    No! Because I install Roundcube by using the package from ispconfig.
    I just want to do thing more easier and simple.

    I have checked the, the "Trash" is already in there. It is the same as your sample.

    So I don't understand why you have "Trash" folder but I don't have it???

    But Hans tutorial is good for us to install Roundcube on port 80.

    You should login as "English" interface, type it in English, then select the language from the preference. The Folder should be displayed as your selected language.

    1. thanks for all your responses

    2. I just went ahead and DIDN'T install RoundCube over the ISPconfig packet like I used to do before....

    I just went ahead and did this HowTo from Hans ... it's a little buggy ... but anyway ... in the end I got it running .... on port 80 .... but anyway .. I think that's actually better than running it on 81 .. because imagine if somebody is working behind a http proxy server and couldn't open the port 81 ... so in the end I think it's the best solve. ...

    and my folders looked like this when I tested it the first time:


    So that's what I wnat to - and now I have it ;-)
