I have updated my old installation how-to.

It is a simple recipe on a clean Red Hat 7.3 system. (

Hope it can help somebody!

Nice and easy to use. I just wish it wouldword wrap the lines at the screen edge. I get every paragraph as one long line of text. Not easy to read.

The easiest way to install IMP
The easiest way to install IMP is to install e-smith.

It gives you Apache/PHP/MySQL IMP, SAMBA plus many more features.

It can all be controlled by a web interface.

It is VERY simple to install.

It's Linux and it's free!

I don't work for them, I'm just a happy user!

Re: Installing IMP with RPMs
The RPMS worked exzellent for me. (Had this time no luck with the tar.gz - ball). Fast, easy, and go.

Great work, thanks

Installation from tarballs

After fiddling around with the installation, I wrote a small document to allow me to remember my steps, the next time I have to install IMP. I hope others, who also have had problems with this installation, can benefit from it.

You can find it at (

Have fun!

Yes, 2.2 does need PHPLIB. 2.3, the new development branch, is PHP4 only and makes use of native PHP4 sessions, and has _no_ need for PHPLIB at all. It is already pretty stable; check it out of CVS at

Wonderful program
I'm very impressed with IMP. I've been looking for an HTTP MUA for about a week and IMP is by far the best. Installation was fairly easy, and the interface is great with awesome functionality.
Good job, people!
