Help setting email business
I've an email server running for several of my clients for more than a year now. Basically it is "postfix + dovecot + mysql", and in a different machine "horde" webmail.
I would like to implement an automate email account creation, including integrated mail password management, billing, etc.
From the threads on this forum it seems that HostBill + FreeRadius would be the way to go.
Is this correct or I need something else/different?
Do you have any experience in a similar setup?
I don't think anyone's going to pay for a single-server email account.
You can take a look at http://modoboa.org/
Try Zarafa + Z-push
from their website :
Modoboa is not (yet) a ready-to-use software. There are some steps to follow before this wonderful tool can be used but don't be afraid, many resources are available to help you.
It doesn't mean it can't be used for production
The setup is just a little bit manual.
Whats wrong with PAM? Postfix --> Dovecot --> PAM (and PAM --> OpenLDAP/Radius)?
but remember if something goes wrong, you may need to fix it your self. (lost data, security hole, etc)
I think it is true for each open source software. There is still a risk but I don't think it should stop us to try such software
Currently it is a single server but the plan is to make it redundant.
"Modoboa" looks good (currently using "PostfixAdmin") I need to test it.
The integration with WHMCS is the more difficunt part for me. May be @shovenose sudgestion is the answer: Pay for a custom solution to someone like ModulesGarden.
Thank you for your ideas.
Indeed our Rackspace Email Extended For WHMCS does the job. Thanks for the mention.
