We have hosted our email accounts in Google apps with the  domain as, and installed round cube web-mail client in a hosting server of ixwebhostings.

After studying the configuration settings of Goolge apps for Outlookexpress, Outlook2007 and Thunderbird, i configured roundcube as following:

$rcmail_config = array();

$rcmail_config['debug_level'] = 1;

$rcmail_config['enable_caching'] = TRUE;

$rcmail_config['message_cache_lifetime'] = '10d';

$rcmail_config['auto_create_user'] = TRUE;

$rcmail_config['default_host'] = '';

// TCP port used for IMAP connections
$rcmail_config['default_port'] = 993;

// Automatically add this domain to user names for login
// Only for IMAP servers that require full e-mail addresses for login
// Specify an array with 'host' => 'domain' values to support multiple hosts
$rcmail_config['username_domain'] = '';

// This domain will be used to form e-mail addresses of new users
// Specify an array with 'host' => 'domain' values to support multiple hosts
$rcmail_config['mail_domain'] = '';

// Path to a virtuser table file to resolve user names and e-mail addresses
$rcmail_config['virtuser_file'] = '';

$rcmail_config['virtuser_query'] = '';

// use this host for sending mails.
// to use SSL connection, set ssl://
// if left blank, the PHP mail() function is used
$rcmail_config['smtp_server'] = '';

// SMTP port (default is 25; 465 for SSL)
$rcmail_config['smtp_port'] = 587;

// SMTP username (if required) if you use %u as the username RoundCube
// will use the current username for login
$rcmail_config['smtp_user'] = '%u';

// SMTP password (if required) if you use %p as the password RoundCube
// will use the current user's password for login
$rcmail_config['smtp_pass'] = '%p';

// SMTP AUTH type (DIGEST-MD5, CRAM-MD5, LOGIN, PLAIN or empty to use
// best server supported one)
$rcmail_config['smtp_auth_type'] = '';

$rcmail_config['smtp_helo_host'] = '';

$rcmail_config['smtp_log'] = TRUE;

$rcmail_config['list_cols'] = array('subject', 'from', 'date', 'size');

// relative path to the skin folder
$rcmail_config['skin_path'] = 'skins/mvision2_en/';

// includes should be interpreted as PHP files
$rcmail_config['skin_include_php'] = FALSE;

// use this folder to store temp files (must be writebale for apache user)
$rcmail_config['temp_dir'] = 'temp/';

// use this folder to store log files (must be writebale for apache user)
$rcmail_config['log_dir'] = 'logs/';

// session lifetime in minutes
$rcmail_config['session_lifetime'] = 10;

$rcmail_config['locale_string'] = 'en';

// use this format for short date display
$rcmail_config['date_short'] = 'D H:i';

// use this format for detailed date/time formatting
$rcmail_config['date_long'] = 'd.m.Y H:i';

// use this format for today's date display
$rcmail_config['date_today'] = 'H:i';

// add this user-agent to message headers when sending
$rcmail_config['useragent'] = 'RoundCube Webmail/0.1';

// use this name to compose page titles

// Set TRUE if deleted messages should not be displayed

$rcmail_config['skip_deleted'] = FALSE;

// Set true to Mark deleted messages as read as well as deleted
// False means that a message's read status is not affected by marking it as deleted
$rcmail_config['read_when_deleted'] = TRUE;

// When a Trash folder is not present and a message is deleted, flag
// the message for deletion rather than deleting it immediately.  Setting this to
// false causes deleted messages to be permanantly removed if there is no Trash folder

// add a received header to outgoing mails containing the creators IP and hostname
$rcmail_config['http_received_header'] = false;

// this string is used as a delimiter for message headers when sending
// leave empty for auto-detection
$rcmail_config['mail_header_delimiter'] = NULL;

// session domain:
$rcmail_config['session_domain'] = '';

// in order to enable public ldap search, create a config array
// like the Verisign example below. if you would like to test,

 * example config for Verisign directory
 * $rcmail_config['ldap_public']['Verisign'] = array(

 *  'filter'        => '',      // used for basic listing (if not empty) and will be &'d with search queries. example: status=act
 *  'fuzzy_search'  => true);   // server allows wildcard search

// don't allow these settings to be overriden by the user
$rcmail_config['dont_override'] = array();

// mime magic database
$rcmail_config['mime_magic'] = '/usr/share/misc/magic';

// end of config file

i found the blank page when tried to login through webmail client roundcube following the above configuration file.
