Im thinking of installing Squirrelmail for testing on my Debian.
I have already Sendmail installed is the any issues or risks of installing Squirrelmail also.
One of the reason is that i want other option for sending mail than mutt
Thanks in advance guys :confused:
You'll need a web server and an IMAP/POP3 server to make it work, and an LDAP or other directory server if you don't want to base identification/authentication on Linux accounts.
Squirrelmail integrates readily with the Apache web server. For IMAP I like Dovecot, but cyrus will also work, probably others. My little setup has only a few users, so the scaling works for using Linux accounts. LDAP integration is a bit tougher, but I think you can find cookbooks for use with Squirrelmail and Apache.
Thanks for your informative reply Mudgen.:)
The main purpose for me wanting tom install Squirremail is testing and dev in php. I have never used Squirremail i will propably look into it. when i have the time to do so.
Glad to help. Squirrelmail is completely php-based, and is probably an excellent choice for your purposes.
