Anyone tried to configure openwebmail ?? because it should work with vm-pop3d
OK, who's are willing to join me with trying to setup openwebmail (believe me its mutch better then the webmail client direct admin is currently using)

Hmmm i cant believe somebody likes the crappy webmail included in directadmin.......

Ok, Openwebmail works with the system users as with the virtual users...everything works ok..

Only thing left is that i must create a temp config file for every doman you create, so that doesnt goes trying to find where i can add this in directadmin..but dunno yet if this is possible..

Keep ya informed

Hey exposed,

Glad to hear you got it working :)!

If you could, please make a post in this forum with a title: "HOWTO: Install OpenWebmail", with all the instructions and everything needed for people to install and use openwebmail. Eventually, when there is a HOWTO forum, or similar, all the HOWTO threads can be moved there for easy access.
