I'm trying to connect to webmail through the front end of my website, using the auth-mailbox-joomla plugin. Currently i'm using a iframe wrapper which links to the webmail.
I'm not sure if i fully understand the function of this plugin, but as for my understanding, it should allow me to login automatically, right? But that doesn't seem to work. Neither the "Show Protocol Errors" option shows anything. Or i simply have no idea where to look or how to set it up.
Could i get a little more details about what the plugin exactly is able to do and how to set it up? I couldn't find any further information or a "how to" guide.
It sounds like what you are looking for is a plugin which provides Single Sign-On between your webmail and Joomla! website (such that the user signs in once and is then signed in to both Joomla! and webmail - particularly for when webmail is displayed in an iframe so they appear integrated). Is that correct?
Unfortunately, auth-mailbox-joomla only changes how passwords are checked by Joomla!. It allows users to use the same username and password in both Joomla! and their webmail, but it doesn't automatically sign them in to one from the other. For that sort of functionality you'll need a Single Sign-On plugin like JFusion.
Does that answer your question? If so, I'll try to update the README to make it clearer what exactly this plugin does.
Thank you for your fast reply, that is very much appreciated
Yeah, that is more the kind of thing i was looking for. Thanks for providing further details.
I now have a better understanding about what your plugin does. Sounds interesting, just don't have an idea for what i could use it for, at this moment. But who knows, might need something like this another time.
Great, glad that explains it. Sorry the plugin doesn't fit your current needs. Best of luck finding a solution that works!
I've updated the README a bit to help make it clearer what the plugin does, as I'm sure it was unclear to others as well. If you have any suggestions to make it clearer, let me know. Otherwise, I'll consider the issue closed.
