    Hi,
    can I install squirrelmail once and make it the default webmail for every domain I add?

    Can I install it inside /home/httpd/vhosts/webmail/?
    I can change the index.html in there and point it to squirrelmail but what happens to each users preferences and emails?

    I can install it once but I have a lot of clients.
    Thanks for your help.

    Use art's yum channel and it will replace horde with squirrelmail..... atomicrocketturtle.com.... Be careful though :)

    What do you mean "Be careful though"?

    Forgot to mention that I use Plesk 7.5.2.

    Make sure you want to go with squirrelmail! I think reverting back is relatively simple though... That's all i meant :)

    That is fine.
    I am used to squirrelmail for the past 3 years.
    Don't like horde at all.
    Thanks

    Can you please tell me where the correct file is?
    Not sure where to search.

    Do you have yum installed? What OS you running?

    I believe Poke was asking what exact distro of *nix you are running. Since you asked what file/where to get it, for example, there is one version of ART's squirrelmail RPM for CentOS 3.4, and a different one for RH9.

    If he (or anyone) posted a link to an exact file and it was for the a *nix distro which was not correct for you, what good does it do you or anyone?

    If you are not using a RH type OS, then ART's repository won't do you any good (like if you are using FreeBSD or Debian).

    Sorry, I am a bit new to this.

    Is this what he is looking for?
    Fedora RedHat OS (Managed OS)

    It is closer. So then that narrows it down to 3 possible files:

    If you have Fedora Core 1 (FC1):
    http://3es.atomicrocketturtle.com/3rd-party/updates/1/RPMS/squirrelmail-1.4.3-0.f1.1.noarch.rpm

    If you have Fedora Core 2 (FC2):
    http://3es.atomicrocketturtle.com/3rd-party/updates/2/RPMS/squirrelmail-1.4.4-1.FC2.noarch.rpm

    If you have Fedora Core 3 (FC3):
    http://3es.atomicrocketturtle.com/3rd-party/updates/3/RPMS/squirrelmail-1.4.4-1.FC3.noarch.rpm

    It is now up to you to determine which exact FC version you have, so you can download and install the correct version RPM package.

    For that matter, you could download and install YUM, configure it for ARTs repository channels, then it will determine the exact version of FC and install the correct version for you.

    As with ANY system, the exact version of an OS can be important. You would not want to try to make Windows XP use older Windows 98 drivers or software, if you were to try to force it, you could end up with a crashed XP system. The same thing applies to Linux systems and Plesk servers. Posting DETAILS can be very beneficial when seeking help

    I have FC2.

    I think I don't have yum though.

    I tried to install yum and got this error:

    error: Failed dependencies:
    libxml2-python is needed by yum-2.0.7-1.rh90.art
    rpm-python is needed by yum-2.0.7-1.rh90.art

    Looks like you tried to install an ART version of yum intended for Redhat 9.

    FC2 should have come bundled with yum. From the shell, try rpm -q yum. If yum is truly not installed, try going to http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Legacy/YumFC2Detailed?highlight=(yum) for information.

    This is the error I get trying to install yum:
    error: Failed dependencies:
    libxml2-python is needed by yum-2.0.7-1.1
    rpm-python >= 4.1.1 is needed by yum-2.0.7-1.1


    I then try to install libxml2-python and I get:
    error: Failed dependencies:
    libxml2 = 2.6.8 is needed by libxml2-python-2.6.8-1

    I then try to install libxml2-2.6.8-1 and I get:
    package libxml2-2.6.16-2 (which is newer than libxml2-2.6.8-1) is already installed

    So I am stuck....
