My MailServer

Since ClarkConnect Community Edition is only gave 10 Mailboxes, so i have to learn how to make a Mail Server by myself.

I built this Mail Server based on these links :

I lost my Mysql password ...but it can be recovered by doing ;
  1. Open Terminal then type sudo /etc/init.d/mysql stop
  2. then run : mysqld_safe --skip-grant-tables &
  3. you will be able to login as root with no password by : mysql -uroot mysql
  4. Then run : UPDATE user SET password=PASSWORD("abcd") WHERE user="root"; ( abcd means your new password for root )
  5. then run : FLUSH PRIVILEGES;
  6. Now you can login by : mysql -uroot -pabcd mysql
How to install Squirrelmail plugins ?

  4. Open terminal, run : sudo squirrelmail-configure
  5. Select option 8
  6. Select the number of plugins that you wanted to run
