    Thanks for the comments, and I have had a look at hivemail.com. The demo is very impressive, it actually has a lot more features than I expected. So this one is definitely on the shopping list once vb 3 RC is released

    Cheers

      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).
      It would be a bonus, however it would be great without

You'd need to write a custom script to allow people to register without admin intervention and even then you'd have to be able to write a shell script to create new POP3 accounts on your server.
        Actually, Squirrelmail uses IMAP accounts. It's what I use.

          Plenty of people selling HM licenses, I got one for half the retail price.
          Hi John,

          Any place in particular I get get a preowned license?

          Did you get your through here?
          I'm on disability and don't have money to pay the full price.
          I run a non profit board for drummers, drum builders and musicians.

          The host I use has Horde and Squirel Mail setup.
          Both run well.

          I'd rather have something written for vBulletin.

          thanks

            SquirrelMail has the option to use POP3 accounts as well IIRC? Anyway the idea is the same.

              You might be confusing IMAP the protocol with IMAP the PHP extension. The former is another method of managing e-mail (folders are stored on the server and messages are synchronized), the latter adds IMAP, PHP, and NDAP (or something) support to PHP.

                I'm aware of the differences, however I was under the impression that SquirrelMail is capable of using POP3 accounts, possibly through a plugin. It's been a while since I've looked at it.

                  It works like a web-based IMAP client. Though I stand corrected; there is a plugin for POP3 I was unaware of.

                    I installed squirrelMail to run off of port 80 as 2095(cpanel) was blocked and assumed it was checking my pop account. How can you tell if you are using Imap or a pop account? My mail client is set up to check a pop account.

                      You have to have an IMAP server installed. It's possible to use IMAP and POP to access e-mail, except with POP you can only access the "Inbox" and it will remove the e-mails from the server.

                      SquirreMail is simply an IMAP client. You use the same login information that you would use in another IMAP client whether it be Thunderbird or Outlook.
