It sounds like a lot of people have tried this product, anyone who has run it for a largish number of people care to comment on it? Performance, reliability etc...

    Cheers

    Thanks
    BTW, this hasn't been made clear yet...do you need vB integration with the webmail script?

    As it's been said in the thread, that would mean there are two very different scripts: ones designed to standalone and access individual POP3 accounts, and others that access a master catchall account to create "virtual" e-mail addresses for users (HiveMail and vBMS do this).

    Thanks for the tips, but could you elaborate more?

    Edit: nevermind, I see it, there's an option if you use sub-account, I used main account so I didn't see it.
    When you go to that alias, you're really logging into CPanel. You access CPanel by going to port 2095.

    I used Hivemail for a few days, i had problems with it sending mail to the wrong accounts so i quickly removed it.

    Thanks for the replies everyone. I have heard of a script named "b1gmail". It is, however, written in German with an not so perfect English language pack. I might edit it a little more and that'd be perfect.

    That'll be of interest dependent on price.

    Been using Hivemail for a while now, and my premium users love it. It *was* a resource hog until I realised I shouldn't really have the php cron set to run every 60 seconds It still hangs sometimes, but nothing a killall php won't fix.

    Definitely worth it, in my eyes. I made back the initial investment from people becoming premium members just to use the webmail.

    Nope, it's a plugin because it's really quite separate. It's written in C or C++ (can't remember which off the top of my head) and runs in the shell on top of an existing mail server. It's actually a whole POP3 server, not just a PHP script designed to act like one.

    We have a plugin ready to go that will be released with HM1.3, that will let you check your HiveMail email from any POP3 client or POP3 service (i.e. inside Yahoo! Mail you can set it to check external POP3 accounts, etc.).
    Plugin? That won't be a standard feature?
