This is the issue...
I manage a server by WHM/Cpanel....
I'd like to replace Horde and the other default cpanel web mail program with RC (roundcude.net) or another webmail program.

Is it possible?

I'd like my user goes to domain.com/webmail, login in and show a RC icon for join the web mail .... like do Horde now.

someone could help me please? :rolleyes:

thank you
Fabio

We just simply disabled all webmail access provided by Cpanel on our services
and then setup our own webmail on it's own account but with an added
"ServerAlias webmail.*" line added to Apache's httpd.conf file and our
DNS templates are setup to add a "webmail IN A xx.xx.xx.xx" line to
all domains added to the server.

The effect is our own webmail system that is not constantly overwritten by
every Cpanel update that comes out (annoying) and has the address of
http://webmail.mydomain.com where mydomain.com is the user's domain.

If you want the /webmail alias, you can do that as well by using an Include
command somewhere later in the httpd.conf file but before the Virtual host
sections and that won't be overwritten by Cpanel updates and then in your
included file put commands to override the "/webmail" alias to point to
your webmail instead of Cpanel's webmail.

I couldn't get this to work.
I'm trying to do the exact thing... having a separate squirrelmail setup.
Besides wanting to have a little more control over plugins/features (without being overwritten by cpanel), I also needed webmail available on a standard port. Some people were having troubles getting to the cpanel versions due to firewalls blocking the cpanel ports.

I was trying to simply put a new alias in the httpd.conf:

with the group of other aliases/scriptaliases
Alias /newmail/ /home/squirrel/public_html/

Then I tried putting it in the alias area (above virtualhosts)
Alias /newmail/ "/home/squirrel/public_html/"

Doesn't seem to work.
I get Infernal Server Error

Basically, I just want to setup squirrel on it's own account (done and works), and have everyone be able to access it by simply typing /newmail/ on the end of their domain.

I could do the dns way, but then I'd have to change all those older accounts, versus one change in httpd.conf.

any ideas?
