Web e-mail !





martichka
Hi,

I'm about to creat a web e-mail (a web site like hotmail) but for personnal usage and friends and maybe, if it works good, make it public for all...
But first, I need to find a good php script (free if possible) to make it..

Is anyone know one that I can use ?

Thanks you.

Tommy.

The script to send emails is not hard to make. To manage and view them is much harder. However, there are three email-programs in cpanel you can use. My university is using one of them for their own webmail, thus it can't be that bad. Wink

A good one that I have used in the past is B1gMail.

http://www.b1gmail.de/index.htm

The site's in German, but you should be able to find your way around.

It works by using a catch-all email address and then sorting the contents of it to a MySQL database. Thankfully, frihost can provide all of this for you.

I also moved this post to scripting.

You can use Horde IMP a lot of ISP use it

http://www.horde.org/imp/

It's good for text mails but not very good for HTML mails.

To get an email script like Hotmails', you need to use CGI instead of PHP. I can search up some CGI scripts for you, but if your hosted here there should be a Scripts Library where you can just click and install the CGI script. If not I can find it for you and tell you how to install it.

Forget about writing a script. You can set up an email website yourself online. OM me if you want more details

I've found many webmail programs that are coded onto one page only, a real space-saver if you are looking for a tiny webmail program without features like addressbooks.

I recommend this one, for example :

OneFile (http://bonneville.nl/software/OneFile/)

I had more than that, but I sorta lost them in my huge list of bookmarks. Razz Oops lol.

Then again, since you pointed out that you wanted to make one of your own, then I would suggest you to read up on this page :

PHP's IMAP, POP3, and NNTP Functions (http://us3.php.net/imap)

Hope this will help you. Smile
