Couple of Questions


#1

Hello all!

I have been with dreamhost for nearly a month now, maybe longer. I prepaid for a year using a $97 discount and so far everything has been HEAPS better then my old hosts!

I have a couple of general questions though, if anyone could help me :).

  1. What is a good alternative to Squirrel Mail?

  2. How do I set subdomains and users to have the same file access thing? I can’t figure this out since it always locks the user to another folder… And I can’t find anything on the wiki.

That’s all, just want to say thanks again for everything, especially shell access! Now I can upload a .zip file then ssh into my site then unzip the file (Main thing I love about shell :P).

Thanks Guys,
Josh Taylor (Happy Dreamhost Customer).

A really good alternative to SquirrelMail is RoundCube.


#3

Does dreamhost have imap?


#4

Yes. IMAP rocks.

Wholly


#5

Yes. DreamHost supports IMAP (and IMAP over SSL if you want that).
I’m using RoundCube and it works great.


#6

I use IMAP over SSL with my mail client, but I always get the certificate warning since I don’t have my own SSL certificates.

To the original poster regarding sharing subdomain files, there’s current thread on this type of setup:
