    Whats the possibility of extending ISPConfig to handle other webmail based software, such as roundcube inparticular?
  2. falko

    You can build software packages for ISPConfig that integrate into ISPConfig, and that can be installed using the Update Manager. For instructions, have a look here:

    or unzip the webmail package (the .pkg is a simple zip file) and have a look at its contents.

    Of course, you could also simply create a web site in ISPConfig and install your webmail in that web site and give your customers the URL. :)

    I tried to follow the link, but I get a Access denied page ?

    We had to remove the wiki due to too much spamming attempts. I will publish the instructions on the ISPConfig development page in the next few days.

    I see the project and it's cool.
    I will make some test on RoundCube with the pkg.

    Well, the RoundCube is now in alpha version.
    Be careful, don't install in a server in production.

    Now RoundCube is Beta Version: 0.1 I tried with ISPConfig and it work fine. I only could validate username, not username@domain. But I think that is possible, RoundCube can read a virtusertable. I am going to try to find a solution!

    any progress on this? I'd like to use RoundCube!

    As for getting RoundCube in a ISPConfig pkg, I'm not sure as the wiki is still down... but for those having trouble getting this working within their ISPConfig setup, this may be of some help ;)

    Follow the instructions from Paul Stamatiou's article.

    After that all that's required is to configure the file for ISPConfig.

    Thanks for the RoundCube installation instructions.

    We had to remove thr wiki due to massive spam problems.

    The package building instructions are avalable in the forum:

    Thats what we were waiting for


    Oke, hope you don't mind if tap in to this tread.
    But this is just what I was waiting for in conjunction with ISPCONFIG.

    I'l skip the UebiMiau pakage and pray this is stable enough.
    The look en feel of this is great!!!

    Hi paulrobert_a,

    Quick question, do I need to uninstall webmail before installing your roundcube?

    The installation works fine. I was able to load up the roundcube login page. But it just keeps timing out and loads a blank page when I try to login using a valid username and password. Any ideas?

    Many thanks!

    falko Super Moderator Howtoforge Staff

    Unless the roundcube pkg also uses the directory /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/web/webmail, you don't need to uninstall Uebimiau.

    litte bug in ISPC roundcubemail

    Here is an new old little bug from ISPC.

    ISPC puts a wrong sender address in roundcubemail. So an mail like:
    [email protected] becomes [email protected].

  17. falko

    falko Super Moderator Howtoforge Staff

    ISPConfig does not have configure RoundCube so if it's a bug it must be in RoundCube, not ISPConfig. But I guess this is just a configuration issue.
  18. tom

    tom Member

    But where to configure?

  19. falko

    falko Super Moderator Howtoforge Staff

    I don't know the RoundCube package, but I guess there must be a configuration file somewhere (maybe config.php, or something like that). Maybe you can also configure this through the RoundCube web interface.

    I've installed RoundCube and it's up and running all good, except for one thing... I can not move any e-mails to the trash?? Any ideas why?
