    Hi there,

    I'm trying to find a different webmail program to use instead of horde, squirrel & neomail. Does anyone know of one that is compatible with cpanel or has anyone done this before??? I've been looking at "@mail" (http://atmail.com/), but i have no clue about coding and add ons for cpanel.

    Thanks for any info you have :)

    this was not written by me.

    Well after seeing this post I could not wait for cpanel to one day eventualy add this mail system so I decided I would give it a try adding it to cpanel myself.

    How I did it:
    First download the package from http://www.roundcube.net/

    Unzip this and rename the file to roundcube so we have a nice file name for cpanel to access.

    Open the main.inc.php file and find
    $rcmail_config['default_host'] = '';

    change this to:
    $rcmail_config['default_host'] = 'localhost';

    now open db.inc.php
    and make sure the database connection settings are ok
    mysql://root:rootmysqlpassword@localhost/roundcubemail

    Now goto WHM and click phpMyAdmin add the database roundcubemail.
    Run mysql.initial.sql that is included in the SQL file of roundcube.

    Now somehow I dont know how you will go about doing It I use WinSCP for uploading files.
    Upload the whole roundcube directory to /usr/local/cpanel/base/

    Now if you goto
    http://yourdomain:2082/roundcube/index.php

    You should be greeted with the login page.

    Now to make it so users can access this from the webmaillogin.html page goto
    /usr/local/cpanel/base/frontend/x
    or whatever your theme is and download the webmaillogin.html page.

    Add the following code after the first </cpanelif>

    <td align="center" valign="bottom" width="200">
    <a href="/roundcube/index.php"><img src="images/roundcube_logo.png" border="0"></a><br /><a href="/roundcube/index.php">RoundCube</a>
    </td>

    Also place a copy of the roundcube/skins/default/images/roundcube_logo.png
    into /usr/local/cpanel/base/frontend/x/images.

    Hope this explains how to do it, took me 10 mins to work this all out.



    MORE STEPS:
    Just relised it was not appearing in http://www.yourdomain.com:2095


    Then upload the image roundcube/skins/default/images/roundcube_logo.png to
    /usr/local/cpanel/base/webmail/x/images

    Regards
    Richard Simpson
