    I've just successfully setup a ISPConfig 3 vps server box and I want to test if the email feature is working as intended. So, i followed these instruction to install the SquirrelMail:

    I used the "squirrelmail-configure" and used the option "D" and set it to use the "courier" IMAP server. When I went to test the configuration like this :

    it said "Congratulations, your SquirrelMail setup looks fine to me!".

    So, I went to login with the email I created in the ISPConfig client section and i got the following error :-

    On the ISPConfig service monitor, it shows that all service are online.

    Can someone help me figure out how to properly configure SquirrelMail with ISPConfig 3 please?

    - Thanks in advance

    ---[ Edit ]---

    I went to check the mail.log file and there was ALLOT of entries that were similar like this. These must've been generated when i tried to send my self an email and send an email using php mail() function:

    does any of this indiciate why email feature is not working on my ISPConfig setup? I run a game server and email feature is an important one. Please help.

    Oh yea, come to think of it, when i was setting up the ISConfig according to the instruction manual, i was installing these packages :-

    on my debian VPS and this message popped up :-

    There was no mention of this on the manual, so i pressed ok on the "yes" choice since it was already selected by default.

    Could this be why email isn't working properly for me?

    Selecting yes was the correct choice. To install squirrelmail, run these commands:

    apt-get install squirrelmail
    ln -s /usr/share/squirrelmail/ /var/www/webmail

    there is no further steps or configuration nescessary.

    Never mind, i give up on this. I am going with OpenVZ with HyperVM and Lxadmin.

    I will give up looking for free stuff. I come to a conclusion that nothing will beat paid software, even if it's DEAD CHEAP. I'd rather pay $10 / Month; than loose my time/effort and get angry and loose sleep over nothing.

    Did you test this?

    Is a very good openvz/kvm manager. In fact is what I use to create preconfigured ispconfig 3 machines.
