Mailserver with ldap tutorial – part 8: webmail interface

Sometimes it can be very useful to be able to read mails via a webmail interface. I’ve decided to use the very powerful but also a bit complex horde framework which also offers clients for calendaring and adressbooks.

Edit 15.05.2012: Meanwhile I’ve switched to roundcube. Horde has proven to be over complicated and rough in the process of updating. As the installation auf roundcube works more or less out of the box I’m not going to describe it here.

Mailserver with ldap tutorial – step 7: mobile access

Although almost all smartphones support IMAP I’ve decided to setup the Exchange-ActiceSync (EAS) protocol. I’m planning to setup calendaring and shared contacts later and some smartphones (as my Palm Pre) only support this via EAS. There is an open source implementation of this protocol called z-push which is originally designed to work with the zarafa gropupware server. This implementation is designed to work with the zarafa groupware server only. There also is an inoffical version which supports multiple backends. Unfortunatly this will not become part of the official releases due to licensing problems.
My setup described here is based on the unofficial release by forgetaboutit.net.
