Alchemy/WebMail version 1.0.1 ============================= Alchemy WebMail is a Web based mod_perl e-mail client. It relies on a database for storing user application data and an IMAP server for managing the user's e-mail. Alchemy Webmail should work with any database for which a DBI layer exists, the preferred database is PostgreSQL. INSTALLATION Ensure that you have Apache 2.x and mod_perl 2.x. To install this module type the following: perl Build.PL ./Build ./Build test ./Build install Database Configuration: Load the appropriate schema file into your database according to your particular database's methods. Note that the schema files contain only the table and sequence shema, they do not contain any authorization information for the database. It is up to the installer to set these to their preference. Apache Configuration: Configure your apache installation for mod_perl and Alchemy WebMail, see the Webmail.conf for an example configuration. "perldoc Alchemy::Webmail" details all of the configuration options. Copy or create templates for your installation of WebMail. The default templates are located in the templates directory of the source distribution. After these steps have been completed you have a dandy web based e-mail application running that your users should like, if they know what's good for them. ;) DEPENDENCIES This module requires these other modules and libraries: mod_perl 2.x KrKit Crypt::CBC Crypt::Blowfish or another cipher that works with Crypt::CBC Mail::IMAPClient MIME::Entity MIME::Parser COPYRIGHT AND LICENSE Copyright (c) 2003-2010 Nicholas Studt.
