Hello, I’m a new Dreamhost subscriber, and like most others thoroughly disappointed with Squirrelmail. I’ve installed RoundCube, and it’s ok but seems a bit buggy and not as full-featured as I’d like.

Has anyone gotten OpenWebmail working here on Dreamhost? I’ve been trying to install it and having some trouble. It appears suidperl doesn’t exist on my server, and I’ve also read that OpenWebMail requires root access.

Does anyone have suggestions to help me get it running?



If that’s true, there is no chance you’ll get OpenWebMail to work. I’ve never used it or herd of it, so I can’t say either way. I just have all my email redirected to Gmail and use that to check my mail.

yerba# rm -rf /etc


Yeah, I knew I wouldn’t get root access, I was hoping someone had found a way to get it working.

One of the features I like is the “Webdisk” in OpenWebMail, this enabled non-experienced users to upload files easily.
