Topic: Why we remove PostfixAdmin in iRedMail-0.7.0.
As you may noticed, we replace PostfixAdmin with iRedAdmin open source edition, which supports both MySQL and OpenLDAP backend, in iRedMail-0.7.0-beta3 .
First of all, you can always install PostfixAdmin manually to help manage mail accounts, and there will be a detail wiki tutorial available these days to help you install and configure PostfixAdmin.
It should be easy to add a new component in iRedMail (e.g. ejabberd, pureftpd, samba, etc), but it's really hard to remove one, especially the one which has been shipped for a long time, and many users use it.
As you may know, we have our own web-based admin panel, iRedAdmin (for OpenLDAP backend) , to help system admin manage mail accounts and related stuffs. It's really cool, and it does make life easier.
iRedAdmin is a dual-licensing product, there're two editions available: one is open source edition, another is commercial Pro edition which has more features than open source edition. We sell this great Pro edition to make iRedMail a profitable open source project. It encourages developers to keep active development and continuous improvement, achieve new features, provide quick technical support via our forum or email.
Dual-licensing is a viable profit model for iRedMail open source project, because we already get benefits from this model. And we'd like to apply this model to iRedAdmin (for MySQL backend) since iRedMail-0.7.0 release.
We try our best to avoid impacting existing iRedMail users, and we consider this will be the best way to keep iRedMail project free, active and growing.
We appreciate all users who purchased iRedAdmin-Pro to support iRedMail project, and we hope there will be more people support iRedMail this way.
