VBoxAdm – Management-GUI for Postfix and Dovecot

Last weekend I’ve released a new web-based management GUI for Mailservers running Postfix and Dovecot. It is called VBoxAdm.

Its features:

  • All-in-one mailserver solution
  • written in Perl (despite some tiny bits of PHP for the Roundcube integration)
  • MySQL Backend
  • Sane Database schema, w/ normalized tables
  • Roundcube integration which allows users to change their vacation messages and passwords
  • ships with its own Anti-Spam Proxy (no need for AMAViS, SpamPD or others)
  • and vacation auto-responder (RFC 3834 compliant)

You can grab it directly from here or get to its page for more details and some more screenshots.

Please beware, this is ALPHA quality code. Don’t use it in production yet. Some parts of the application haven’t even been tested partly. But the code ist more or less complete so besides testing and minor fixes it is in pretty good shape.

KDE4.4: Getting rid of Akonadi-MySQL Startup Errors

Since upgrading to KDE4.4 I’ve got startup errors each time Akonadi was started due to some missing MySQL system tables.

It’s easy to fix this:

akonadictl stop
mysql_install_db  --datadir=$HOME/.local/share/akonadi/db_data
akonadictl start

And don’t forget to install akonadi-kde-resource-googledata. Thanks to Trumpton.
