vBulletin POP3 / IMAP Email Client
Version 1.4 for vBulletin 3.x.x by Dr Erwin Loh

World's easiest hack to install! Upload a file, and you're done! No templates to add, no files to edit!!!

Ever wanted to access your POP3 or IMAP email account when you are away from your Outlook Express? Sick of Hotmail and free web-based email addresses, and want to just stick with your ISP email account? Want to be able to use a web-based interface? Want to be able to integrate this interface into your forums and offer it to your members?

Here we have it - I've created a file that does all that.


Features:

1. Only 1 file to upload, no templates, no file edits!
2. Automatic integration into your forums, with your forum colors and layout.
3. Accesses any POP3 or IMAP email account.
4. Ability to bypass any firewalls that any mail servers may have.
5. Ability to READ, REPLY, REPLY ALL, DELETE, FORWARD, and COMPOSE emails using the interface.
6. Ability to read HTML emails.
7. Ability to ATTACH files.
8. Ability to VIEW / DOWNLOAD ATTACHMENTS.
9. Ability to show HEADERS of emails.
10. Ability to allow certain usergroups access to this.
11. Ability to allow or disallow users from changing their FROM: email address
12. Ability to let yourself change the FROM: email address at at all times.
13. Your user can use this to access their ISP email account, or (Yahoo email or Hotmail premium accounts) via your forums!


Installation:


Upload email.php into your forums directory, link to it, and you've got an instant web-based POP3/ IMAP email interface in your forums!

Nothing else to do!

By default, this allows registered members, moderators and admins access only. You can edit the top of email.php to add or remove usergroupids easily.


Settings:

At the top of the PHP file, you can change the variables to:

1. Decide which usergroups can use this
2. Allow or disallow the changing of the FROM: email address (security update)
3. Exempt yourself so you can always change the FROM: email address

Requirements:

1) This hack requires PHP 4 or higher on your server.

2) This hack requires you to have IMAP support compiled with PHP on your server. If you get a error like "imap_open undefined function", then you dont have IMAP support. Sorry!

If you see this error message, you do NOT have IMAP compiled with PHP:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function: imap_open() in /home/yourforums/public_html/forum/email.php on line 652

Please click the install link at the bottom of this thread for updates.

Enjoy!

Add-Ons (OPTIONAL) -

1) Username and Mail Server saved in Member Profile:

To make the Username and Password become part of a member's profile (I don't suggest to include password as well as staff can then have access to this), just create 2 custom profile fields in your Admin CP - one for Username, the other for Mail Host Server. Make sure they do not show up in the user's profile.

Then, note down the custom profile ID number of each of the 2 custom profile fields (hover your mouse over the link to each, and it's the number at the very end of the URL in the status bar).

Then, in email.php, find:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Underneath, add:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Change x to the ID number of the username profile ID, and y to the ID number of the host mail server profile ID. Done!

2) Force user to use a specific mail server:

In email.php, find:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Change to:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Change 'mail.yourserver.com' to your own mail server subdomain name.

3) To force users to use only POP3 or IMAP

In email.php, find:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Replace with:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Change POP3 to IMAP if you wish.

Updates:

Version 1.1 - removed the vB2 variable $bburl which was left over.
Version 1.2 - removed the vB2 variable $bbtitle, changed it to vB3, and also fixed up the table heading variable - purely cosmetic.
Version 1.3 - added automatic navbar support.
Version 1.4 - fixed email address server name domains, removed 1 query by caching template, fixed Attachment: alignment.

Screenshots:

1. Login screen
2. List of emails
3. Reading emails
4. Composing emails

Enjoy!

The $bburl isn't parsing right. When I click it, I get the same error. I have it set at http://www.yoursite.com/forums/email.php but it keeps going to http://www.yoursite.com/email.php after clicking the button.

maybe, someone can post the codes to edit the usercp so it'll have its own section, if member has never used the e-mail, it'll make them (if they choose to) give user and pw, and ect. so their account e-mail can get set up.... and also... under private messages on the forumhome, it'll say E-mails: or whatever... :squareeyed:

Yup, same thing.. it's trying to goto /email.php instead of forums/email.php

I fixed that manually by doing a replace all $bburl/ to $bburl/forums/

Now am unable to recieve e-mail or login.. when entering my e-mail information...

Warning: Couldn't open stream {****.com:110/pop3}INBOX in /home/www/lssix/forums/email.php on line 653

When trying to access hotmail:

ERROR
The requested URL could not be retrieved

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

While trying to retrieve the URL: http://www.lssix.com/forums/email.php?

The following error was encountered:

Zero Sized Reply
Squid did not receive any data for this request
Looks like it needs some work.. Will be great when all the bugs are worked out though..
