Plesk New Install + MailEnable

    I am using MailEnable Professional, I just wanted to see if anyone had any advice on whether it should be installed before Plesk or after, does it matter?

    So you got mailenable pro to co-exist with plesk, or you run things manually?

    Did you just install over the path of the standard edition installed by Plesk? Did everything go smoothly? Did you have to do anything special? I am asking because I am ready to install MailEnable Pro and another thread was mentionning some serious issues. Thanks for any input you can provide.

    I read a thread with people discussing serious issues but i think they must have been talking about Plesk 6? Plesk 7 supports MailEnable Pro.

    I had no problems installing with Plesk 7. Yes installed over the standard version which Plesk installed.

    Then there are a few changes you need to make to get MailEnable Webmail working on webmail.domain.com instead of Horde.

    1. go to Computer Management -> Local Users and Groups
    2. set password to user account IME_USER
    3. go to IIS Manager
    4. select site "webmail(default)"
    5. open "webmail(default)" Properties dialog
    6. go to tab Home Directory and set it to <MailEnable Path>\Bin\WebMail
    7. go to tab Directory Security and set IME_USER as anonymous
    8. create MEWebMail virtual directory for folder <MailEnable
    Path>\Bin\WebMail under "webmail(default)"

    if you want to logon as user/password (by default you must logon as
    user@domain/password), you should replace line 133:

    oLogin.UserName = Request("UserID")

    in <MailEnable Path>\Bin\WebMail\base\default\lang\EN\login.asp with

    UserID = Request("UserID")
    If InStr(1,UserID,"@") = 0 Then
    ' user & hostname
    SiteName = GetSiteName()
    If InStr(1,LCase(SiteName),"webmail.") = 1 Then
    UserID = UserID & "@" &
    End If
    End If
    oLogin.UserName = UserID

    I followed your instructions, and everything went very smoothly. Not a single problem: all prior domains are fully enabled to use MailEnable WebMail. I am delighted!

    Thank you so much for your input.
