If your mail sever is all set up, then just put in the mail sever and email and password for a user that on the mail sever.

ok but is there a way to test roundcube with free imap mail servers such as fastmail.fn, just to see how it works before setting up the original mail server

Well you can use any webmail sever that has imap. If you need a email that you can test roundcube with feel free to use my demo account, here are the details:
Code: [Select]
Username: [email]demo@skaero.com[/email]
Password: password
Mail sever: mail.skaero.com

You'd go to his site (mail.skaero.com) and enter the username and pass he's given you...

Roundcube is a webmail application (installed onto the server) not an email client that you install and run on your local machine.

Hope that clears things up for you

Not true what he wants to do is to you his computer as a sever using xampp. The demo account was for roundcube, That the mail sever an email and password that could be used to test roundcube.

To ozenbas,
All you need to do is install roundcube to your htdocs. Just use the install instructions that are in the roundcube folder.

If you have installed roundcube then you should see a roundcube login with a username, password, a mail sever boxs. just put in the username, password, and mail sever that I gave you before.

there is no log file?

what it makes me thing since it does not give error and go to the inbox page, i think there is a problem to redirect to the mail box page because after writing the information u gave me, it just erase the entires and show me the login page again,

i only installed this file com-roundcubeV1.0     am i need to install also the normal roundcube installation then this file?
