Webmail required for Fedora - Postfix - Cyrus IMAP - MySQL - SA - Amavisd

Dear All,

I have a server with Fedora 7 - Postfix with MySQL support for hosting multiple domains.  I am able to send and receive mails via a MTA (MS Outlook / Thunderbird / etc).

Tried configuring SquirrelMail as the webmail and see that the left frame is not being populated and I have an error
"ERROR: Could not complete request.  Query: CREATE "Sent"  Reason Given: Invalid mailbox name."

But the main window is also empty and does not show any mails that are there in the users directory.  Any suggestions for a webmail?

hi,

you need to configure squirrel to use correct mailbox naming (choose imap server type 'cyrus' or mailbox separator '/' in server settings)

also you could try roundcube ;) http://roundcube.net/

best regards,

i have only courier imap running, changing the server to cyrus has removed the warning from the left menu bar.  but still dont see the mails in the inbox.  the queue is empty.

also when i try and login as a user for a second domain, it says the IMAP server has dropped the connections!!! any ideas on that one?

heh, so what imap server do you have - courier or cyrus? also are you using imap in your mail client or pop3?

have enabled both imap and pop3.  sorry about the confusion earlier.  i think it is mostly going to be pop3. but funnily, changing it to cyrus made it work for the left side menu bar.

now the issue is that the mails in the queue are not getting populated for the users and there is only one single domain users who are able to login using the webmail.  it is not allowing for the rest of the domains.

am i missing something here?

msklizmantasCommented:
please check your squirrel config, it looks like that something is not correct there. by the way, the queue means mail list in the squirrel?

if you use pop3 with mail client, then mails are not left on the server and you can't see them via webmail.

yes, the mails in the squirrel.  when i send a mail to my own id, (i have my thunderbird closed on my machine) i see it delivered.  i cant see it in the browser window.  but when i start the MTA again, i see that the mail is downloading.  kind of confused with the behaviour.

also why say that the imap server dropped for the other domains???

you had to change the mysql database with the list of domain names and the smtp part (transport field in the database) need to be populated only with a ":" without the quotes.

once done, then it starts receiving all the mails and showing them for the domains.  dont ask me the logic behind it but that did the trick.  

thanks for the help
