Is it possible to turn horde off,

In server-manager/E-mail you can set webmail access to disabled (I think this is actually the default setting after a fresh installation).

When you install Sogo on a server with webmail disabled, the Sogo contrib takes care of the webmail URL and Sogo starts when you point your browser to https://servername/webmail - a very nice way to replace horde for your existing users (if you want to do) who are used to "webmail" usage and that URL.

I've just started to reinstall my 8b6 server and I'll try this approach when it's up.

I've now reinstalled my server from scratch - bare metal to fully configured server with PHPMyAdmin, sme-unjunkmgr and sogo all installed and running in 2 hours - what other distribution could that be done in?? Good old SME.

I left webmail disabled in the server manager and, as MDO indicated, SOGo becomes webmail automatically. Very cool!

But! The problem with folders still persists. I made a subfolder of inbox called contribs and then deleted it which made it a subfolder of Trash. When I tried to empty trash it said it could not be emptied. There is a problem here which I'll buglist with the SOGo people and here if it has been entered in the lists.

On further experiment I found a work-round. Moved some mail to Trash and then tried 'empty trash. It worked and took the errant folder with it. So it isn't possible to delete a folder from the trash unless there is other mail in Trash at the time.

this should be reported in SOGo ML and bugtracker

I tried to report this and some other stuff into the Sogo bugtracker this morning and the sign-up routine fell over and put up a load of code in red at the top of the screen, so I cannot post into their bugs at the moment.

I went back and tried to sign up again and the system knew that my suggested screen name had been used, so perhaps the sign-up did work and they are just a bit slow sending out the activation emails.

On another subject to do with SOGo: the live demo shows extra facilities that would be really cool to incorporate into the SME install. If we can run Seive on our servers [Dovecot Pigeonhole?] there are a few lines that need to be added to the config file that will incorporate filtering as a dialogue at the bottom of the Mail Preferences page of the webmail interface. There is also a spell checker, a vacations dialogue and a forwarding dialogue for the preferences but the forums are less informative on what is needed to build those in.

With those items folded into the SME install this contribution would come closer than anything else I've yet seen to giving SME the groupware facilities needed to make it a complete small office server. The best feature is how much faster and slicker it is than the standard php based products. The horde-style diary sharing and overlaying is a real plus; for small offices it is infinitely superior to the Outlook/Exchange model of voluntary email notification of diary items.

I look forward to future developments of this promising contribution.

Hi, i'm newbee here, so sorry if it's not the right topic.
I read all (maybe all) about Sogo in several forum but i cannot find any info for complete synchro.
Explain : SME 8b6 (fresh install and updated) + opnvpn-bridge and openvpn-client + ddclient

I install SOGo => ok it works perfectly (disabled horde), i received emails => ok
I try to install Funambol (V9.0.0) => Ok test on funambol/ds =>ok
I add module android on my cell phone (HTC) => i can synchronise the both (cell <=> Funambol) but anything in Sogo.
I have already install 2 times and check all (i hope)!!! But i cannot find the end of tunnel.
Somebody applies already this solution ? Maybe i forget another module or ...
Have you links to test, follow or explain it? I'm dry

Cordialement

ps: i'm french, sorry for my english.

Would it be possible to include the following in the SME server wiki?

After install (yum installed SOGo version 1.3.5a) I had the problem of getting booted from the login, so added the following line to /etc/e-smith/templates/home/sogo/GNUstep/Defaults/.GNUstepDefaults/10defaults:
>    OCSSessionsFolderURL = "mysql://sogo:{$sogod{'DbPassword'}}@localhost/sogo/sogo_sessions_folder";
> Then signal-event sogo-modify; /etc/rc7.d/S85sogod restart
> That took care of the sessions problem introduced with sogo 1.3.5

I had the same problem today

Yes, you can apply for an account and do it yourself. The wiki is a collaborative initiative.

Hi Cactus,

I am more that willing to contribute so I have requested to join the documentation team.

SOGo 2.0 rpms for EL5 were just made available today it seems - anyone interested in developing that as a contrib can check this bug report - http://bugs.contribs.org/show_bug.cgi?id=6767

Given the recent goof by Inverse regarding missing packages in the sogo repository, to avoid updating only parts of a working install I would suggest changing the update command in the wiki to:

yum --enablerepo=sogo update sogo

Running the command as it is yesterday updated my sope49 packages, but the sogo 1.39 packages are missing... leaving me with a missing linked library and a non-functional sogod.
