Am I right in saying that 10.8 Server has removed Webmail?


Is it possible to get it back?


Thanks in advance

    Can't find it! What happened to Webmail? The option has dissapeared from the mail window in the Server app, this is incredible!

    Apple Removed Roundcube because within recent months, Roundcube moved to GPL license 3.0 which means it can't be bundled in commericial software.


    You can install Roundcube 0.7.2 .


    Note Roundcube 0.8 stable will be available soon since they have a  few bugs left to work out. And it's a nice big facelift change to the new Larry theme.


    Note  you might want to install mysql server vs using postgresql since some carddav plug-ins use mysql.

    Apple still could have bundled roundcube 0.7.2  since it's GPLv2. Only Roundcube 0.8 and greater is under GPLv3.

    I tried to install Roundcube, but I havw two issues:


    I couldn't connect to database and

    I couldn't connect to IMAP-Server ... :-(


    Does anybody have a hint oder a  how-to ?

    Hi mopedpan,


    Can I presume you followed the install instructions and installed mysql and then created the user that is needed in order to connect? Did you also fill the database with the sql script that they supply using the new user you created in the database?


    I also had to edit the main config file to set the imap url to use tls://localhost for its connection -


    // %d - domain (http hostname without the first part)

    // %s - domain name after the '@' from e-mail address provided at login screen

    // For example %n = mail.domain.tld, %d = domain.tld

    $rcmail_config['default_host'] = 'ssl://localhost';



    // TCP port used for IMAP connections

    $rcmail_config['default_port'] = 993;



    // IMAP AUTH type (DIGEST-MD5, CRAM-MD5, LOGIN, PLAIN or empty to use

    // best server supported one)

    $rcmail_config['imap_auth_type'] = 'LOGIN';


    Also notice the port number and ath type lines.

    Hi Gary,


    no, I have tried to manage it with postgres, maybe thats the problem. semms to be a greater issue with postgres and the way to connect ... I'll try it later with mysql and will report ...

    thanks for the hint with the main config file !
