    Roundclube is a web based email client similar to Squirrelmail. IMHO it has a much better user interface and seems to function better.

    Here is the DirectAdmin post about roundcube:

    And here is how to install it in about thirty seconds... Server wide!

    This uses a very cool script called ELS or Easy Linux Security Script. More on that here: http://www.directadmin.com/forum/showthread.php?t=17070&highlight=els

    wget --output-document=installer.sh http://servermonkeys.com/projects/els/installer.sh
    chmod +x installer.sh
    sh installer.sh
    cd /usr/local/bin
    ./els --roundcube
    service httpd restart

    I've been using RC for some time now on one of my domains. I'm using a CVS with a preview pane html editor as well as some other features.

    I must say, it is going to be an extremely powerful IMAP email client.

    I just wish that the updates came more quickly.

    Just a word of warning some the optimizations ELS does will only work on a CPanel server. Take a look here to read up on it.

    It is rumored that RC will replace Horde in an upcoming release of DA.

    I don't have any proof of it though.

    An Easier Method for RoundCube Install

    Now that the release version of Roundcube (0.1) is a part of the custombuild script, it is easier than ever to install.

    First, you need to go to the custombuild directory

    cd /usr/local/directadmin/custombuild
    Next, update the versions so you have the most recent

    ./build update
    I like to clean stuff up just in case, but I don't think you have to do this

    ./build clean
    Now, we are ready to install roundcube

    ./build roundcube
    I did this and roundcube is now available in all user control panels. Unfortuneately, for some reason, only the inbox is available initially. I'm trying to see what I can do to fix that issue, but so far I've had no luck.

    If anyone has any ideas, let me know.

    Anyone looking to install RoundCube, just be aware that currently there is a HUGE exploit in the htmltotext file. This has been fixed in the 0.2 version which is available to download already.

    That is also the version that custombuild now installs.

    An upgrade can be performed by following the exact same steps.
