    Hi folks,

    Ubuntu LAMP 6.06 amd64
    SugarCRM 5.0

    I have SugarCRM 5.0 running on this LAMP box. But users can neither send nor receive emails. It comes to my notice that "Inbound Email cannot function without the IMAP c-client libraries enabled/compiled with the PHP module"

    $ apt-cache policy php5-imap
      Installed: 5.1.2-1
      Candidate: 5.1.2-1
      Version table:
     *** 5.1.2-1 0
            500 dapper/universe Packages
            100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

    $ apt-cache policy libc-client2002edebian
      Installed: 7:2002edebian1-13
      Candidate: 7:2002edebian1-13
      Version table:
     *** 7:2002edebian1-13 0
            500 dapper/universe Packages
            100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

    I need to recompile php5 with;
    ./configure' '---enable-mbstring' '--with-imap' '--with-imap-ssl' '--with-kerberos' '--with-curl'
    However I can't find php5 source

    $ sudo find / -name src -type d | grep php5
    No printout

    Also I need Debian package development tools:

    $ apt-cache policy build-essential debhelper
      Installed: (none)
      Candidate: 11.1
      Version table:
         11.1 0
            500 dapper/main Packages
      Installed: (none)
      Candidate: 5.0.7ubuntu13
      Version table:
         5.0.7ubuntu13 0
            500 dapper/main Packages

    I suppose need to install them running;
    $ sudo apt-get install build-essential debhelper
    and download php5 sourece;
    $ sudo apt-get source php5

    plus all the dependencies for building PHP:
    $ sudo apt-get build-dep php5

    Here I hesitate on which directory shall I run;
    ./configure' '---enable-mbstring' '--with-imap' '--with-imap-ssl' '--with-kerberos' '--with-curl'

    On "cd php5-xxx/debian" ???

    Kinldy shed me some light assisting me to avoid making mistake. TIA

    That's right.

    I don't think you have to run ./configure. I think the ./Configure statement is in one of the files, maybe in the debian subdirectory. I'd modify that, go one directory up, and run
    This creates new PHP5 .deb packages that you can install with
    dpkg -i

    Hi falko,

    Thanks for your advice.

    Before reading your posting I already got it done.

    # cd /home/satimis/php5-5.1.2/
    It is the correct directory to run ./configure

    It went through without problem. Reboot PC.

    I'm still struggling on the email problem. SugarCRM on the remote server can be visited on local PC on browser running;
    Users can login their accounts. It is very strange users can't send and receive emails on SugarCRM. However the users, same users, can send and receive emails on local PC via SquirrelMail on browser without problem. The same users can receive email on Evolution of local PC. But they can't send emails on Evolution. (please see another thread on this forum)
