If you're installing Apache and PHP5 it'll probably work, just try it out.

As for IMAP, its the Internet MAil Protocol of memory serves me right, an alternate for POP3 (Post Office Protocol) and SMTP (Simple Mail Transer Protocol I think). Try looking it up at :smile:

I known what is IMAP and now i can connect to my mail page. Now the problem is i dont know how to make IMAP work. I downloaded imap.tar. and extract it. It is just a normal file without install

Does anyone know how to configure to make IMAP work?

Install exim mail server and imapd if required secured connections .
SquirrelMail its just a web-frontend, not the mail server .

1. You're not "making", you're "setting up".

2. Install Apache, then PHP, following the documentation.

3. RTFM.
