Projects / Openmailadmin


Openmailadmin is a little administration interface to every complete IMAP mail server daemon. It supports every feature IMAP provides, and fits in most MTA configurations. A key feature is the non-standard, generic administration hierarchy which not only seperates "normal users" from "administrators", but enables the mailserver-master to create instances between them. You will be able to let other users create their own sub-users and thus either share a single mail server between different organizations or project your company's employee structure. It excels with features such as regex addresses and folder ACL management.

          Release Notes: Openmailadmin is now the first Web-based administration frontend to support new ACLs as suggested in RFC 4314 and implemented in Cyrus 2.3.0 and later. The password hash method can now be chosen. This version has been largely rewritten for PHP 5.1 and PHP 6 and UTF-8 is now the default character set. Support for logger was implemented and the IMAP libraries were optimized.

            Release Notes: The Chinese translation has been revied. Support for CRYPT-hashed passwords has been dropped. Changes in setup's appearance have been made to fit smaller screen resolutions. Redundant fields are now hidden in the installer if IMAP type is "demo". Fixes were made for bugs which prevented changing a password immediately after having logged in, which prevented displaying of ACL at demo installations and induced an empty page in the installer on certain versions of PHP 4.
