DBMail/Postfix/Roundcube -- How to get them to work with each other?

Okay, so I have DBMail installed and running. It seems to be getting mail and its mysql DB is populating with data (I setup a catchall account with dbmail-users -a catchall -w xxx -s @xxx.com for example.).

I'm using Postfix with Dbmail, which has been working for sending, and should be for receiving as well (dbmails DB is populating as I stated.)


I have roundcube installed now but I don't know how to make roundcube grab/communicate with DBmails DB. Is there something I am missing? Does anyone have any suggestions?

Right now I haven't setup roundcube other then the initial install, I'm sure there's something I'm missing. I'm figuring maybe roundcube needs to use DBMails DB and not its own DB, and some way to grab the users I created with 'dbmail-users'.


Does anyone have any installation guides/tips/etc? I am stuggling to find information for some reason, maybe I'm missing something here for Roundcube setup. Thanks!

Roundcube should connect to your mailboxes via IMAP.
Do you have an IMAP server such as DoveCot installed?

Ah my bad, I'll need DoveCot installed as well as an IMAP server, that links up with Roundcube/DBMail then I presume?

Try one of these (depending on your distro)

sudo apt-get install dovecot-imapd

or

sudo yum install dovecot

An imap server is also required for clients such as Microsoft Outlook.

Apparently it is my bad as dbmail is also meant to be an IMAP server

I haven't come across that one before.
