    Hello,

    Is it possible to use the atmail (Email Server) with cpanel?

    Or will cpanel always try to kill the atmail email server software?

    (Note, I am not referring to the atmail webmail client, but the actual atmail email server setup.)

    Thanks.

    A client of mine accidentally let atmail people onto his cPanel server and they FUBAR'd mail. AFAIK it will not work on a cPanel server and will break the very nect time upcp is run. You'd also, obviously get no support from cPanel for anything email related. I wouldn't let them near it.

    Thanks! That is good to know. The people who admin our servers have also said they think cpanel will overwrite the mail stuff, too.

    Our client wants the atmail "mail server" simply because it has really good integration with spam assassin and clamAV. The users can set up their own settings, and admin has a nice web admin area for it all, too.

    We're trying to steer them away from the "mail server" and use only the atmail WebMail Client. (But then it won't have nice seemless integration with the mail setup stuff.)

    As an alternative to the atmail spam assassin/clamAV setup, we're probably going to try and get them to use your mail frontend that you sell for spamassassin/clavAV that integrates into cpanel. I've seen a number of referral/recommendation threads on these forums, and visited your site a few times to read about it. Looks good. The client does want it all integrated into the atmail system, but I think they'll just have to "suffer" with it being integrated into the cpanel system instead.

    Does your mail system offer "per user" (email account) spam assassin/clamAV control? Or is it only per-domain?

    (Basically, we have only the one domain on the server.)

    Edit: Our other alternative is to set up a VPS for them with ONLY the atmail Mail Server installed (no cpanel). We've floated this idea to them, too.. but I'm not a big fan of that.

    The way we setup MailScanner it's done per domain. However, without the front-end it would be simply enough to edit the rules files manually to do it on a per email address basis. Not exactly user-friendly, though.

    Enclosing it in a VPS sounds like an idea with, perhaps using it as a smart relay. No idea if that would mess up atmails configuration though.
