HI, I plan on in a couple of weeks to start making a php class script to make a mail system page.
I am using postfix as the mail server.
What I want to do is have webpages created that would interface with the postfix mail server.
what I mean by interface I mean like to make a page that a user has to be logged in. I will check if the user login if not he will be promted a login window.
Then when logged in I want to make a interface kinda like a gui. That will be somewhat like aol,msn,or yahoo, e-mail pages.
I want to make buttons like send mail or read mail or new mail which would open an area that would list the new mail ect.
I also want to be able to make some php code which will add new users. So in my registeration I want to grab the user name and then make a new user in postfix and setup a mail account with postifix so that I don't have to manually add people.
I have heard you can use mysql-postfix which adds to postfix to use a mysql database as a user database ect.
I never got this working but would like to know what websites are good on tutorials about this.
I really want to do such a thing in a few weeks. I know about squirl mail and I know their are already freeware webmail interfaces.
The problem is I want the look to be custom. Like the colors and the designs.
I want the looks of the mail interface to blend in with the overall website.

Build a template/skin for one of those open source web mail packages. Do not try to rebuild it yourself. You do not reprogram Windows if you want a new desktop image?
