    Hi Sofian,

    You can try the following command for installing webmail:

    rpm -ivh openwebmail-2.30-1.i386.rpm

    Bright, you're not helping much with this type of answer.

    OpenWebMail can only be used from a root apache install i.e. /usr/local/apache/htdocs.

    cPanel removed it some time ago due ot security issues but I think those isuses have been long removed.

    Maybe cPanel should consider putting openwebmail back.
    I like it since it's a Yahoo-like webmail.

    I am beginning to think that BrightAdmin is a bot that autoresponds with canned answers based on keywords. :eek:

    It certainly doesn't seem like much thought goes into Bright's replies. :rolleyes:

    I too would like to see openwebmail integrated into cPanel. (Let the flames begin!) Even at the expense of NeoMail.

    I posted a message in this forum a few weeks ago seeking for installation help. I think there was no reply.

    I have searched through the internet and found a couple of installation instruction (in Chinese). I have installed many software for my box and Open Webmail is definitely the hardest. !@#$%^&* It requires many non-standard modules to be installed and you need to follow the instruction to configure your server.

    Following the instruction, I still failed to install it. I hope someone will come up with a new guide. I like Open Webmail as it is a much "improved version" of Neomail.

    Hello Brenden,

    Is that using custom configuration for each domain or is there a simple GUI approach that can be used with cPanel?

    Are you able to assist further?

    Hey,

    If you install openwebmail in a cpanel server. you should disable exim and related programs. You should create all the admin users of all virtual domain manually. After that each admin user can create their own users through a web based interface.

    But you should read all the document before installing it. Because Openwebmail uses postfix instead of exim. Vm-pop3 instad of cppop.

    but if i am not on a cpanel server. i simply have access to a cpanel with no administrative rights to the server, but just to my hosting account.

    i am actually referring to a reseller, selling me a webhosting package.
