W-mail lite installation notes

W-mail should work on any web server with PHP with IMAP support. You should be able to get W-mail working simply by uploading all of the files and editing one file.

  • Unzip the files and place them all in the same directory

  • Edit the file called vars.php in your favourite text editor, such as Notepad and you should see something like this

<?php

// This is your default IMAP or POP3 server.
// If the IMAP server is on this machine than you can use 'localhost'
$defaultIMAP = "localhost";

// Default port.
// Default for POP3 is 110 and for IMAP is 143
$IMAPPort = 143;

// Server type: 'pop3' or 'imap'
$servertype = "imap";

// How many messages to display per page (this is actually number -1).
// Remember you are limited by the mobile phone's maximum page size on Kb.
// Every phone is different in this respect
$messagesperpage = "4";

// Software version - Do not edit
$version = "3.2.2";
?>

You may need to make changes to this file. To make changes to any of the default settings, enter the correct setting between the two sets of "quotes".

Default IMAP Server: Set this to your default IMAP or POP3 server. This can be of the form of an IP address, remote address, such as mail.yourdomain.com, or as simply as localhost. You should use localhost if you are connected to a POP3 or IMAP account on your own server.

IMAP Port: If you are using IMAP set this to 143 (or whatever your IMAP port is) and if you are using POP3 set this to 110 (or whatever your POP3 port is).

Server Type: Define whether to connect via IMAP or POP3

Messages per Page: This defines how many messages to display on your inbox summary page before splitting to a next page. This is set to 4 by default as you are limited by the maximum card size of the phone.

Save the changes an upload the files to your webserver. You should upload all .PHP files in ASCII format and the WBMP file in BINARY format.

Testing your installation

You can go to Gelon.net or Yahoo WAP Emulator to test. Simply call the URL you installed W-mail to and enter your username and password. Of course the login details you enter must be valid on the server address and port you put in your vars.php file.
