Thread: IMAP Server

  1. #1

    IMAP Server

    Ok, I've managed to install and configure Apache with PHP, ProFTP and MySQL, now to complete everything I need an IMAP server.

    Any suggestions? I've always had control panels manage my mail. Does qmail do IMAP or just send the emails like sendmail does.

    Qmail includes a POP3 server, but not IMAP. If you're using qmail I would recommend using Courier-IMAP. You can find it at http://www.inter7.com/courierimap/

    Thanks, that is just what I was looking for! I think I'm going to avoid using the POP server bundled with qmail. IMAP is so much slicker. I can have both Outlook and IMP and not have them step on eachother's toes.

    If you're going to use Qmail I highly recommend vpopmail. http://www.vpopmail.cx

    Makes thing's much easier and interfaces with everything.

    I've been testing the following combination:

    QMail
    vpopmail
    qmailadmin (web-interface to vpopmail)
    courier-imap with SSL support
    IMP as webmail software (take a look @ horde.org)

    You could also use sqwebmail, which integrates nicely with all this. It works directly with the Maildir format that vpopmail uses so it's much faster, but IMP looks so much nicer.
