ViMbAdmin Virtual Mailbox Administration

The ViMbAdmin project (vim-be-admin) provides an web based virtual mailbox administration system to allow mail administrators to easily manage domains, mailboxes and aliases. ViMbAdmin is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify it under the terms of the GNU General Public License version 3.

ViMbAdmin was written in PHP using our own web application framework which includes the Zend Framework, the Doctrine ORM and the Smarty templating system with JQuery and Bootstrap.

ViMbAdmin is hosted on its own GitHub project page where you can find documentation, browse the source code and access our Git repository. We have also set up a Google Groups discussion group or you can follow the blog posts on our MD's personal site.
