    Hi,

    I just wanted to ask the same question here.

    It looks like we only need the webmail frontend, what would be nice to use with another MTA and IMAP client indeed.

    I hope this is possible.

    Of course, just use the --imapserver property at user creation (and see --extendedoptions) for more information about the command line tool "createuser". We've tested cyrus, courier and dovecot with postfix and exim so far.

    Hi Martin,

    I alreayd have a mailserver that is running and use Horde for the moment.

    I would like to switch to OX for only the frontend for users, the mailservers are managed by other software.

    This would be possible ?

    This is the purpose OX Hyperion has been designed for: You have a mail server and would like to enhance this with groupware functionlity. All email related setting have to be done in your mail server. OX Hyperion actully does not care about your email setup as long as a user can login to groupware and IMAP.

    BTW, the purpose of "Extras" is to jump to a webpage to manage the user's mail account. Therefore, it cannot only open a web page but also create a session and automatically authenticate the user. This might be tricky to set up when you do this the first time, but it is definitely worth it.

    Hi mayank,

    again: just use the --imapserver option of the createuser command line tool. There you can add your imap server (ip address/Host). You don't have to configure anything at the config files of OX, the IMAP Server capabilities get parsed and autoconfigured if the users logs in. We did not yet test qmail, but it would be nice to hear your feedback
    --extendedoptions offers those two parameters which are related to your problem:
    --imapserver (your imap server)
    --smtpserver (your smtp server)
    --imaplogin (your user's imap login name)
    Those options also apply to the "changeuser" script, for the matter you wish to change existing users.

    By default, the password from the users login at the web interface is taken as password for the users password at the imap server.

    Greetings.

    I think you're mixing up the ox server and the mail backend. OX uses every mail account you configure, it behaves like a ordinary imap client. Setting up domains and such stuff is a qmail task. At OX side you just have to set the imapserver, smtserver and mail property to tell ox how to use the imap server. I'm not sure how compatible it is to qmail because currently we focus on cyrus, courier and dovecot.

    Greetings
