Connect egroupware or Tine2.0 IMAP to Citadel

By greavette ·

I've been using Citadel for 3 years now as our mail server. It's a dream to setup and easy to use, but the web interface is not something my co-workers enjoy to use. For years now we've been using Thunderbird with IMAP to our Citadel mail server. Thunderbird never has implemented a decent shared addressbook so 2 years ago I implemented egroupware as our shared addressbook. Beauty of this is that Thunderbird can update the egroupware addressbook directly from Thunderbird. My co-workers have never once logged into egroupware to modify a contact.

What I really want to do is move our small office to a pure web email client with shared addressbook/mailing list. For a long time I tried to connect egroupware to citadel using imap, but was never able to make it work. It seemed to connect but would never display my email. I'm not the only one who's tried this it seems...I noticed a member here on Techrepublic - Neon Samurai also tried and wasn't able to connect.

So, I'm asking Techrepublic to assist. We are a small office that prefers to use open source software when possible. Our thought is we would rather use open source software and save on licening to pay for support when warranted.

I would prefer to continue using Citadel as our mail server. It's ease of use makes it hard to give it up.

I've tried Roundcube, which worked for a little while, but after a few months stopped connecting to Citadel.

I've thought I should try using Tine2.0 (fork of egroupware). Maybe they've fixed what egroupware couldn't.

What have others used as a email web client that has shared addressbook/mailing lists.

Thank you.
