Managing mail accounts via control panel

Hi,

Would love to hear from anyone with good experience with a web based 
control panel for managing mail accounts.  We are beginning to have way 
too many to manage by hand.

Thanks for suggestions,

Charles Hatvany

We've had good experiences using the IMAPv4 module for Webmin with our 
Cyrus IMAP server.  Get nice graphs of quota usage, can create accounts, 
set permissions,  delete accounts, create shared folders, etc.  Only 
thing we don't use it for is setting/changing passwords (that's handled 
via LDAP).

Re: Managing mail accounts via control panel

you can use postfix admin it's located in /usr/ports/mail/postfixadmin and 
here is the web page http://high5.net/postfixadmin/

 Postfix Admin supports:
- Virtual Mailboxes / Virtual Aliases / Forwarders.
- Domain to Domain forwarding / Catch-All.
- Vacation (auto-response) for Virtual Mailboxes.
- Quota / Alias & Mailbox limits per domain.
- Backup MX.
- Packaged with over 25 languages

 Requirements:
- Postfix 2.0 or higher.
- Apache 1.3.27 or higher.
- PHP 4.1 or higher.
- MySQL 3.23.xx or higher.

Re: Managing mail accounts via control panel

I have not tried to get this to run under FreeBSD, but it works great 
under QiLinux with relatively low installation time. SurgeMail 
http://www.netwinsite.com/surgemail/ even though its a licensed product 
it is very reasonable in cost for the amount of users it supports. I am 
currently migrating to this from a fbsd box with the whole 
postfix/courier/mysql setup described earlier in the thread. This just 
drops in as a whole mta, with shared calendars and the users control 
their own rbl/greylisting/etc. It is sick! Especially if you are a 
provider who is charging for service, it is worth paying for.

There's a gaggle of them: gplhost, ispconfig, webmin (?), etc.

I haven't found one I liked.  Mainly because none do a good job
of managing multiple services on multiple servers.  Also, some
config options are stored in text files not a db.  That's another
area I found lacking.  Finally, I use the Courier MTA, not
postfix.  Most free software panels assume Postfix.  Finally, I'm
a little paranoid about security.

So I'm writing one [1].  My approach is to use key-based SSH to
talk to other servers.  I may even write a special shell to
further restrict what the panel user can do (ala git-shell) on
the remote box.  The fascgi panel app runs in a chroot jail.  

Using C and multi-threaded fastcgi (mainly for fun, I know it's
overkill--cgi would probably work just fine).  I'm hoping to do
very little templating/layout on the server and stuff the UI into
javascript.  Haven't got that far yet.

Most of customers want logs and email mods.  Phpmyadmin does a
fine job of satisfying the demand for db gui (seems like that's
what everyone expects anyway).  What tasks do your users want?

By the way, given how much free software ISP's use, it's
surprising to me there's not a good free panel yet.

Re: Good OSS Control Panel ala CPanel ...

The best FOSS control panel is Webmin, but it is prone to security 
vulnerabilities frequently, and I would not run it on any of my servers, 
even dev. Plesk > cpanel, but the license is more expensive.

Re: Best NMS

Hi,

You should have a look at zabbix. It's pretty good to use as a monitoring 
and management system.
