Roundcube webmail


Hello there,

Can anybody let me know how good is roundcube?
I'm currently using squirrelmail, and my customer asks me for a better interface that of course squirrel does not have (no offense).

I saw this and its interfaces are quite good.
Would you please be kind to give me your full opinion? And would it be easy to move from squirrel to roundcube?
I'm using postfix, mysql, and squirrel mail "obviously"
Thanks in advance

squirelmail is really offensive to look at, I've always thought. It seemed to have this bizarre cache from being GPL, but it's a horrible client, really poor. Roundcube is certainly a HUGE improvement. I've personally implemented horde/imp a number of times and that usually comes up pretty good for it's aging codebase. A transition should be pretty easy if squirrelmail was set up well in the first place. connecting both services over imap makes things all very generic, well, *quite* generic so you should be able to run both at the same time.

...and from a completely different angle:
Roundcube CVE entries and Roundcube statistics.
squirrelmail CVE entries and squirrelmail statistics.

Hello acid_kewpie,
Thank you very much for your reply.
I began with installing the roundcube.
I reached step 3, and it tells me that I have to manually run the mysql.update.sql statement on my sql database, and all I get is Errors most of them are 1146, I think I need to Create the tables, no? or what is wrong with it?
Thanks in advance
