    I followed the howto on postfix, virtual users, etc... ( ) and I think that part is working correct.
    But now, I would like to use horde/imp as webmail client, but the configuration of horde is a problem :confused:
    I've got it working, but the settings are a problem, specially the authentication part. Is it possible to use the users I created in the postfix-database for authentication in horde? And if so, how can this be done?
    Any help is really appreciated :)

    Not too sure on horde but the likes of

    tend to work out of the box for virtual users etc. As for horde i have never tried it as i have heard its a bit of a beast :) . I only have about 50 domains to look after so the 3 above work well and are nice and light weight

    I assume you have checked out horde.php

    Good luck any way

    Thanks for the alternatives. I already checked Roundcube and squirrelmail. Roundcube doesn't have a calendar function, that was a big min, though the looks are a great plus :)
    I hate the Squirrelmail look, there is nutsmail ( ), but I don't really like to pay for a skin ;)
    I will see if I can find some skins for Ilohamail.

    Yes, it's running, altough not perfect (sometimes it's terribly slow).
    First, you should make that there is at least one mail in your mailbox, so it's 'initialized'. Authentication should go via imap, using localhost as server and imap/notls as protocol (port 143).
    Imp is something else, the server list should be 'hidden' and you should edit /horde/imp/config/servers.php so $servers['imap'] becomes something like this:
    $servers['imap'] = array(
        'name' => 'IMAP Server',
        'server' => 'localhost',
        'hordeauth' => false,
        'protocol' => 'imap/notls',
        'port' => 143,
        'maildomain' => '',
        'smtphost' => 'localhost',
        'smtpport' => 25,
        'realm' => '',
        'preferred' => '',
    And just hope that everything goes fast, since I added turba (contact manager) and another theme (from, everything is incredibly irritating slow (don't know why, still figuring out) and the administration menu doesn't work any more :confused: (and I just find oud, the menu in imp is also gone :( )

    If you like the calender function, you also can give Ilohamail a try.
    It has a build in calender/scheduler, contact manager and a bookmark manager.

    It is more easy to setup than IMP/Horde and it is a great piece of PHP software.

    Squirrelmail also has a calendar as add on... and some other nice features :)

    Indeed, I'm currently using squirrelmail (didn't post that here yet) with a skin I found over here. Only problem is that the calendar-function is rather basic (just add event, no repeat etc...).
    Ilohamail is also nice, but the skin doesn't really appeal to me.

    try to contact till or falko to create a package for ISPconfig if you got it running!!! I want to have it too!!!!! ;-))))
    ^^a dream would become true if horde works with ISP ;-)

    Is it still running slow?
