Question How To Install Squirrel Mail


I have successfully built my self an Apache web server and now would like very much to have it running as a mail server as well. I like the idear of web mail so I thought I would give Squirrel Mail ago. I downloaded the latest RPM for redhat 8 and now would not have clue what to do next.

Install it

Sorry, ok..

First off, I'd not use the RPM, it's just as easy to grab the squirrelmail tarball and untar into the directory where you want it to live, just doesn't make sense to have an RPM for such a thing?

Second, if you do install it, it will likely place the directory containing squirrelmail config files et al in a location that RH uses as the default location for it's webserver. Either way a:
locate squirrelmail
Should be able to show you where it went.

Then you'll need to configure it:
perl /path/to/squirrelmail/config/conf.pl

And be sure you have an IMAP server running, and a mail server. RH I believe by default uses UW-IMAP.

HTH

Cool

What if you use POP3 through SSL MasterC? Can you still use squirrelmail?

But if you setup pop3 through SSL it wouldn't be much setting up IMAP through SSL as well

In terms of SSL you probably want SSL on apache too since that is another unsecured transfer. If imap and httpd are on the same machine thn you don't even need ssl.

If you want a web interface to pop and IMAP then give MoreGroupWare a shot.

Install uw-imap RPM from your install CD's, restart xinetd (maybe?) and you should then have a working IMAP server. Pizza cake eh?

Cool
