    I'm used to running postfix and cyrus imapd with mysql virtual domains, and have grown accustomed to the features of Postfix Admin (http://sourceforge.net/projects/postfixadmin/). I'd love to be able to merge my mail server and voip server, keep everything under one roof, but I need domain aliases, email aliases, etc.

    So:
    1) can I set up my mail server as normal and have elastix leave it alone and drop mail functions from the UI
    2) either way, I'd like to make a feature request for expanded email controls.

    Hi Loconut, wellcome to the forums!

    Sorry about the late reply, but I missed your post.

    1) Yes
    2) It would be nice. I have asked about Zarafa integration (http://www.zarafa.com) in Elastix, but I don't think they'll ever do it. So I made a script to install it:

    http://www.elastix.org/es/component/kun ... html#34178
    (it might be outdated, get the new rpms and follow the script line by line).

    If you manage to improve the existing email functions, share it here, and maybe they integrate your changes.

    My spanish is pretty lacking, but I'll have a look at the script.

    I'm not sure I even care if elastix expands the email section as long as I can make sure it doesn't automatically change anything about postfix or cyrus and disable any email controls in the UI. Then I'll just use my normal postfixadmin. I'd really like to merge my aging mail server onto my brand new server that's now running elastix 2.0, but want to be sure my email configuration isn't clobbered by any automatic process or ui clicks- at least those outside of the email pages.

    Try google translate for my comments.
    I have noticed, it is not a real script, as you need to manually run the ./install.sh script. I just followed their installation instructions.
    But please notice that Zarafa replaces cyrus, but you can use it with postfix.

    You can configure your chosen email incoming/outgoing servers and you should be fine.
