    Hi all!!

    I would like to have a central webmail interface rather than per domain (or at least per client would be good), any ideas would be muchly appreciated??

    Many thanks for any help!!

    You could just setup a domain or sub-domain... say webmail.hostingprovider.com ... and install Horde, squirrelmail or whatever on there. All customers can access it as it will just use standard IMAP access.

    Webmail is centralized. The Webmail folder in the httpdocs dir contains Horde/IMP which is used by every domain on your server.

    I think he wants a single installation rather than the standard Horde install which is accessible for each domain ... probably for a link from his website to webmail or similar.

    That's exactly it Cranky, any ideas how to do that?

    It seems that the Horde folder is centralised, as per sieb post:

    /home/httpd/vhosts/webmail/horde

    but how do I get webmail.hostingprovider.com to work for all domains?

    You want what Sieb said I think ... if you just upload a script to:

    /home/httpd/vhosts/webmail/horde

    That will be accessible via every domain.

    You have to setup a subdomain for each domain that wants its own webmail and install a client there. But you will have to use something other than "Webmail.domain.tld" because Apache automatically routes all webmail.* requests to the Horde dir.

    Thanks for your replies however, not sure what you mean!

    Currently each domain has its own webmail access via

    webmail.domain1.com
    webmail.domain2.com
    ...

    as I own all of the domains I would like to be able to check email for all domains. I have created a subdomain mymail.domain3.com.

    It would appear that the webmail folder is located at:

    /home/httpd/vhosts/webmail/horde

    and horde is only available above and not in each domain (/home/httpd/vhosts/domain.com)

    Is there a file within horde that I have to change so that it allows checking multiple domains? Many thanks for your patience!!
