Squirrelmail Plugins


Just an FYI post.
I save all my added Squirrelmail plugins in /Users/Shared/squirrelmail_plugins/. Consequently if I need to reinstall any or all of them all I have to do is issue the following…
sudo cp -R /Users/Shared/squirrelmail_plugins/PLUGIN_FOLDER
sudo /usr/share/squirrelmail/config/conf.pl
Activate the plugins, save, quit and you’re good to go.

    Hi Andy,
    Thanks for sharing this bit of information. Did you not manage to set up WebDav for the /usr/share/squirrelmail/plugins folder? If you did in the mean time, please share as well (I’m just 3 days on the new server, almost everything done, just not customizing the standard webmail).
    Thanks, Danny

    @Danny, it was never my intent to set up WebDAV for that folder. I’m not sure why you would. What version of the Server OS are you using? I understand tht in Lion Server webmail is now being handled by Roundcube.

    I’m still using Snow Leopard Server. There are a number of things I need to figure out, like virtual domain management for Lion Server, before I upgrade.

    This post was to help me when I had to update Squirrelmail and had to re-add my plugins.

    Hi Andy,

    Still using Snow Leopard. I just updated Squirrelmail with the plugins that I used on another server as well, some of them are really old (8 years) but stable. The screenshots and specs of Roundcube show some nice and some alarming features; the admin panel is on the To Do list … But it looks ok and I assume that the Apple crew took a decent look before they switched 😉

    What’s different for the virtual domain management? I’m working with virtual hosts in Web Server and multiple domains in Mail Server, works like a charm … I cannot find too many details @ Apple about the new functions.

    Thanks, Danny

    Danny, apparently the new Server.app and Server Admin.app do not have the settings that they once did. In particular, I read that most of web virtual domains and any redirects need to be hand edited in the Apache config files. I’m not quite sure how easy it is to add virtual domains for mail hosting in the GUI.
