    Hello !

    I recreated my Debian Lenny server, now that Etch is pretty much tapped out, using the "The Perfect Server - Debian Lenny" instructions:

    I also got ISPConfig running under SSL with the "Enable SSL for the ISPConfig 3 Control Panel Login" instructions:

    I would REALLY like to obtain instructions for getting SquirrelMail to run under SSL as well. This is the last major configuration step for me. :D

    Can someone direct me ?

    Thanks !

    Doesn't anyone out there want SSL protected email ? :p

    Here's what Till wrote to me back in January, but I didn't get the chance follow up:
    1) Create a new website in ISPConfig for SquirrelMail , e.g. with the domain, make sure that you select an IP address and not * in the site settings.
    2) Enable the SSL checkbox for this website
    3) Create a SSL cert on the ssl tab of the website form.
    4) Install SquirrelMail into this website.

    The first 3 steps are easy. The problem I encountered is SquirrelMail has already been installed as part of the "Perfect Server" instructions, so step 4 is a bit problematic. If I move the SquirrelMail files to the directory created by ISPConfig, how will "apt-get update" find the files ?

    Thanks in advance,

    I'd install SquirrelMail manually in that web site, i.e., you download it from and then follow the installation instructions.

    Thanks !

    That sounds logical. I'll give it a try this weekend and report back if I encounter any problems.
