SquirrelMail, a Web-Based Mail Server

Squirrelmail does not require sendmail or imapd,
it just requires an SMTP server and an IMAP
server. Due to historical security issues, we
are running qmail instead of squirrelmail. We
also chose Courier IMAP instead of imapd.
Squirrelmail works flawlessly with both.

Another thing not mentioned is that Squirrelmail
has support to run over secured IMAP and HTTP.
It's a bit trickier to configure, as you have to
know a bit about ports, but far from impossible.

All in all, I have been running squirrelmail for
over a year on several machines, and I am quite
happy with it.

  • Squirrelmail and Apache
    2003-07-16 09:07:55  anonymous2 [View]

    I have some problems with squirrelmail installation.
    I have two different servers. One is for webserver, the other one is for mail, and samba server. Both servers are situated behind the router (I have one static IP for all services). Now I would like to set up squirrelmail. Can I use squirrelmail as virtual host in my apache configuration? If yes, how should I setup DocumentRoot for squirrelmail (apache server and mail server are on the different computers). May be I need to run another apache server on the same computer where mail server is? But I have 80 port forward (on the router) only for my web server. So, if somebody have had this situation before and can help me, I'll be happy.
    Please send me answer by mail
    Thank you ALL!!!
