    Hi,

    Is it possible to access to Neomail through HTTPs? (I mean for any account, not only the main account through CPanel)

    Thanks.-

    Hi,

    Taken from http://neomail.sourceforge.net/#qna

    Q. NeoMail is insecure! It sends passwords in plaintext! Why didn\'t you implement SSL in it?
    A. Because that isn\'t my job. ;) Seriously, though, a CGI script isn\'t responsible for handling SSL, that\'s handled by the web server it runs under. All links within the NeoMail web pages are relative links, thus, if installed on an SSL-enabled webserver, such as apache-ssl, NeoMail won\'t take your clients out of SSL mode by specifying a link as http:// instead of https://.


    Hope this helps ;-)

    Thanks Domenico.

    The problem is that webmail data will travel through port 2095 which doesn\'t seem to accept the SSL protocol. If you type:
    https://yourdomain.com/webmail/
    it does just nothing.

    I suppose it should be like ports 2082/2083 for CPanel and 2086/2087 for WHM (stunneling port 2096 toward 2095 I believe).

    I already post it as a possible enhancement at cpanel\'s bugzilla.

    It\'s great, this is like Aladdin\'s Lamp, but with unlimited bandwidth :D

    Try this now:
    https://www.yourdomain.com:2096

    POP and SMTP too... :)

    This also taken from the NeoMail web site.....

    IMPORTANT NEWS
    Future development of the official version of NeoMail has been cancelled, or at the best, indefinitely suspended.


    Nick, know you busy as sin, but looks like you\'re going to need to pick this one up as one of your own projects and carry it forward as the author suggest... Maybe call it CPMail....

    I did! Nothing happened. How did you get that port to work?

    You must replace \"domain.com\" with your own domain :D

    Do you have a secure cert installed?. For me it works perfectly.

    I was taking a stroll through the server and when I asked for the contents of /var/cpanel/stunnel I got this:

    stunnel.127.0.0.1.110.pid
    stunnel.127.0.0.1.2082.pid
    stunnel.127.0.0.1.2086.pid
    stunnel.127.0.0.1.2095.pid
    stunnel.127.0.0.1.25.pid

    so I tried with 2096 and it worked.

    I\'m using CPanel 4.2.0-STABLE_35 now.
