#5551 assigned Bug/Something is broken

Make webmail.mayfirst.org use the shared IMAP server

Description

It would be great make webmail.mayfirst.org always use mail.mayfirst.org as its mail server so that users don't have to know and enter their server name. Is this feasible? What needs to be done?

  • Keywords webmail mail.mayfirst.org added
  • Owner set to https://id.mayfirst.org/jamie
  • Status changed from new to assigned

Again we're generally uncertain what this entails. Could all use a crash course on our mail/webmail configuration.

Yup - no prob.

https://members.mayfirst.org 's list of mail servers is controlled by the config file on hay.mayfirst.org:

hay:/usr/local/share/village/live/config.inc.php

And, a corresponding file on stallman must be edited for Horde to recognize a new server as well:

stallman:/usr/local/share/horde-live/imp/config/servers.php

I've just added mail.mayfirst.org as an "experimental" server that anyone should be able to choose.

I've pretty sure we should be able to smoothly transition, but wanted to be sure we don't have any unexpected surprises. Not sure if anyone receiving this actually uses webmail in any consistent way... but if you do, please login using mail.mayfirst.org and report any problems.

I login via webmail on occasion and don't see any problems. I'm inclined to leave this open for another week or so, and then remove the drop down completely, making mail.mayfirst.org the automatic choice (with some help text explaining that switch so people don't get taken by surprise).
