    The Admin manual says you can use the update page to install uebimiau. i have tried anf it just comes up with various errors. Is there a simple way to install this last part or is there a way to use Squirrelmail?

    Please help.

    If you dont post the errors here, i cant help you.

    What is simple? Make a new site with PHP enabled, download the squirrelmail package from squirrelmail.org and follow the instructions that are inside the squirrelmail.tar.gz file.

    I guess you tried to install a tar.gz file you downloaded from the Uebimiau web site. This doesn't work! You have to take the webmail package (extension .pkg) from the ISPConfig website:

    Those .pkg files are versions adjusted to ISPConfig! You cannot take other files!

    Thanks guys.

    I was installing from the .pkg file downloaded from ISPConfig site but I was attempting the install remotely from another workstation. As soon as i tried it from the subject server... it worked like a charm.

    It seems I have SquirrelMail installed as well. Will there be any clashes or does it just mean choice for my clients?

    I have a few more questions so i hope y'all don't mind too much as you have helped me install all of this in days rather than weeks/months. :D

    1. just tried installing oscommerce and it errored with "FATAL ERROR: register_globals is disabled in php.ini, please enable it!" Can this be fixed or will it hard my ispconfig install and if no then can anyone recommend another shop/basket?
    2. I have the subject server behind a seperate firewall which allows me to port-forward so everything can now be seen from the outside except Postfix allows receiving of mails but not sending. the internal IP is (DMZ local address), pointing to an external address (say which is on the wan side of the firewall. I think postfix does not allow clients on a different subnet to send mail although they can receive. i have not made any changes to postfix configs etc what is in the tutorial best ever.... SuSE 9.3. Can anyone help with this one?

    Finally, a big thank you to Falko... your guide is fantastic and has saved me a lot of time after attempting several other tutorials on the postfix homepage. May I suggest you put a link there as I for one will be evangelising about ISPConfig to anyone who will listen.

    Many many thanks

    It's up to your clients, they can use the webmailer they prefer.

    1. You have to set
      register_globals = On
      in your php.ini

    Did you get any error messages in the mail.log when you try to send mails?

    You can also enter
    php_admin_flag register_globals on
    in the Apache Directives field for this web site in ISPConfig.
