    Hi there,
    I did a setup of mail server based on the following Falko tutorial.

    Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier And MySQL (CentOS 5.1)

    Now i want to install SquirrelMail. How can i install squirrelmail?

    I have never done a setup of mail server where users reside in the database.

    Any help will be highly appreciated.

    The easiest way -- probably -- is to just install via yum
    yum install squirrelmail
    This will also configure apache so that points to the squirrelmail install.

    So there is no a different way of installing squirrelmail between normail mail server setup and the setup where users reside in the database?

    Shouldn't be any different... Squirrelmail authenticates to an IMAP server... so it should be able to authenticate to any IMAP server, using a database or not. The users are stored on the mail server side, not really on the Squirrelmail side.

    I know there are some configurations to do. As far as i know, i dont think yum instalation of squirrelmail will do everything for it to be up and running. Can you explain a little bit more on how to go about?
