    You must install ISPConfig's webmail package: http://www.ispconfig.org/downloads.htm
    You can install it with ISPConfig's Update Manager: Management -> Updates

    Yes, but at the moment I don't know in which file. You might have to search the sources a little bit. :)

    You can also find a link to webmail under "Tools" in ISPConfig. :)

    Is there anyway to change the port on the webmail? We have a strict firewall at work and I can not access any other ports than 80...

    Create a new web site with ISPConfig and install your preferred webmail package (Squirrelmail, Uebimiau, etc.) there.

    clarification possibly?

    How would one go about installing a webmail package for just one website - it seems that ISPConfig configures webmail and phpmyadmin packages as a global thing instead of a per-site basis?

    Will I have to do this for all my websites instead of just using some kind of rewrite/proxypass combo to redirect all of them to the same interface? I too need to have my webmail accessible via default ports (80 or 443) as a subdomain but I would definitely prefer to only have roundcubemail installed once for example and just let all my users login through the same webmail interface with webmail.their_domain.com instead of main_server_domain.com:81/roundcubemail

    Thanks in advance!

    do as falko told you and on every new domain you add don't forget to goto Co-Doamins tab on your webmail site and add

    hostname: webmail
    domain: their_domain.com

    and to make sure that is going to work you can see all od the webmail.site.com hostnames in your Vhosts_ispconfig.conf as ServerAlias.

    it will be nice to be automated but this will work also ... maybe in some new release this will be done with 1 click :)

    Thanks for the co-domain stuff, I thought that might be a solution. The problem I'm having is I don't know how to install roundcubemail or other packages for one specific site or subdomain? I can install it through the Management -> Update section but once installed how do I get it to work for just the one domain?


    I have domain.com setup as my default server name and have installed roundcubemail as an addon package. How do I add webmail.domain.com (assuming I add it as a new site), but how do I get the webmail interface to show up as the primary page for webmail.domain.com instead of as: http://webmail.domain.com:81/roundcubemail?

    Thanks for all your help in this,


    Okay, update on this - I reread falko's post and think this is what he's saying (in clearer terms for myself for later):

    create subdomain as new website: webmail.domain.com
    go to the server location /path/to/web/root/webmail.domain.com/web and install the webmail application on that actual domain.
    Seems like a hard way to go about doing it but I'll gladly do it if that is all that is required and then I can just do co-domains for all the other sites! Thanks for the help!

    Did you use the email address to login to UebiMiau?
    Can you fetch email with normal email clients like outllok or Thunderbird?

    Have you configured your courier auth daenon to authenticate against the /etc/passwd, /etc/shadow files or PAM?

    Is the email user listed in /etc/passwd?
