    Hi,

    I was wondering what the installation and configuration process is for squirrelmail on debian multiserver setup.

    Fist I install squirrelmail :

    then create symlink? :

    then configure squirrelmail :

    Do I then customise the following, using the same settings?, if not what should they be? :

    I was also wondering where abouts I reconfigure squirrelmail to connect to my mail server instead of localhost.

    Thanks very much for your time!

    Yes.



    I guess you have to configure this in menu item 2. Server Settings in squirrelmail-configure .

    Hi Falko,

    sorry to be a pain but I have a query about the settings I should use when configuring squirrelmail.

    I have noticed that when setting the IMAP server for squirrelmail you do :

    But during the setup for Debian, courier is not installed. Does this mean I should install courier?

    If so should I follow step 9 of Perfect server install for Debian Lenny? :

    Then step : 19.2 SquirrelMail?

    Thanks very much for your help!

    Hi Falko,

    Just to say that I followed the multiserver setup guide on the ISPConfig manual and ISPConfig works great!:D

    I am however having problems with email. I have seen where I went wrong with the squirrelmail config - use dovecot instead of courier.

    I have setup a new domain and mail box in ISPConfig, I can login to squirrelmail, but cannot send or recieve emails. I get the error :

    Any ideas?, Thanks very much!.

    Are there any errors in your mail log (in the /var/log/ directory)?

    What's the output of
    Code:
    netstat -tap
    ?

    Hi Falko,

    I have checked mail.log on my webserver and it is empty, I run netstat -tap and get :

    mail.log on my mail server is quite full, the only thing I could find is :

    Do you need the entire log?

    The output of netstat -tap on my mail server is :

    Thanks!

    Hi Falko,

    I am able to send emails internally, what modifications do I have to make to enable emails to be sent externally?

    Many Thanks!

    Did you enable "Server requires authentication" in your email client?

    Hi,

    I have tried using outlook, but I am unsure what settings to use for incoming mail and outgoing mail, So I have used following settings :

    Have checked box "my server requires authentication". (is this what you meant?)

    Have outgoing mail smtp : port 25
    Incoming mail pop3 : port 110

    But still dont get incoming external mail, and get the following error when sending email :

    Thanks very much for your time, its just that I am new to all of this, and need a little help!

    Does mail.example.com point to the correct server? You can check that with
    Code:
    dig mail.example.com

    Hi,

    The result of dig mail.example.com is

    This points to the external ip address of web.example.com (81.192.138.12)rather than the address of mail.example.com.

    Then you must change the A record of mail.example.com so that it points to the correct IP.
