    Hi there!

    I've installed ispConfig an it's working great for me. Because I had to install it on an existing server environment I decided to take it step by step. The Webserver configuration worked fine and is up and running.

    Now it's time to move the email-stuff. Existing environment:
    - Postfixadmin is (still) in use
    - Spamassassin up & running
    - sieve up & running
    - Roundcube (v 0.52)
    - Plugins:
    - password
    - sieverules
    - sauserprefs
    - markasJunk2

    1. Postfixadmin:
    This caused a major headache, but I was able to get the data from postfixadmin over to the ispconfig db. And here is my first question:
    Postfixadmin used md5 password encryption whereas ispconfig used something else.
    I've modified:

    Modified Line 84: Encryption set to md5

    My target is to preserve the user Passwords.

    What I want to do now is to reconfigure / reinstall ISPConfig but this time with a mailserver. Is there anything else to make the md5-encryption work?

    2. Roundcube
    This is also a major problem. This is definitley caused by several features the users have in their webmailer (f.e. tag spam, setup filterrules within roundcube & stuff). Because this seems to be a hell lot of work to get this going I want to keep my current anti-spam & filtering solution in place and just use the user-administration of ispconfig. Therefore here is my second question:
    Is there a major problem with this by modifying the postfix-configuration (main.cf) after the reinstall of ISPConfig? (I thought about excluding clamAV as a transport-pipe.)

    The only thing that is still problematic is the feature that users are able to change their password from within the webmailer. I found the sql-command in the plugin-configuration file and wondered if it is possible to change this command, so it writes to the isp-db?

    The Anti-Spam stuff I'm going to migrate on another shiny day. ;-)

    I appreciate any suggestions.

    You will have to change the configuration files of all dameons that use these passwords (postfix / sasl / courier / dovecot).
