    Hi All,
    I've installed a test server using "The Perfect Server - Fedora 14x ..[ISPConfig 3]. All seems to be working fine. What I can't seem to find/do/implement is a way that the end user can change their own Out of Office/Vacation reply. I can log in as an CP admin and set the autoresponder for a particular user, but can't find in squirrelmail where the user does this.

    I tried using the document "How to set up a postfix autoresponder with autoresponse", but I must have something wrong because when I do the settings and restart postfix, my server will not accept any email.

    Thanks Till,
    I had looked at that document, but it references RoundCube mail and I'm using Squirrelmail as per the Perfect server install doc.

    Should I remove squirrelmail and add roundcube?

    if I login to ISPCFG3 as an admin I can edit the mail users and edit/change their out of office - is there no way anymore for users to login and do this themselves?

    If there is, what is the url for them to login?

    if there isn't I still got the old squirrelmail problem: and this means all users who want access to the out of office function need me to create another user for them, as in System => Remote Users?

    really sorry for bumping this after less than a day but its quite urgent. I got users who will go on leave very soon and all of a sudden I have this problem and as far as I can remember there was a way to do this with ISPCFG only.
    PLEASE, just a pointer or hint would be great!

    I want my users to be able to set their own out of office message. I thought there was an option for them to log into ispcfg and change their password and set out of office notices but I can't find where to do this.

    As to the suggested solution here with the squirrelmail plugin that is a no go since nobody has been able to help me and a bunch of other people in this thread: to get it working.

    and as to squirrelmail: I have it up and running, the plugin works too but not at the proper URL. check above link to the squirrelmail thread please.

    Oh, okay, I didn't realize that you had foregone the SquirrelMail plugin altogether. I use Roundcube, so I can't offer much insight there.

    There is indeed a means by which to change one's auto-responder in ISPConfig: Email tab (in top nav) -> Email mailbox (in left nav) -> Click the mailbox to be affected -> Autoresponder tab.

    Does this address your problem?

    I'll take a look at the SquirrelMail thread and see if it's something simple or an actual "bug"...

    I perused the SquirrelMail thread that you referenced and while not everybody in the thread has the same problem (whether they know it or not), each issue seems to be "operator error"; PHP misconfiguration, Apache misconfiguration, permissions misconfiguration, etc.

    Maybe I'll install SquirrelMail and help troubleshoot over there. It seems to be a common problem.

    thanks for trying to help.
    I quickly installed the squirrelmail plugin yesterday and it works. the problem remains that squirrelmail is only accessible via but via i.e http://anydomain.tld/webmail/

    you can try i.e. and it will download the index.php file
    permissions are fine, the site is working fine only squirrelmail is giving trouble.

    The way to change the out of office reply via ispcfg is only available to people that have access to ispcfg back end. I need end users to be able to change their own ooo replies.

    Given your statements above, the SquirrelMail plug-in is the only option. Let's take the discussion over to the other thread.

    I'll try installing SquirrelMail right now, per the cited tutorial, and will report my findings on the other thread.
