Manage Amavis Spam/AV Quarantine For Free in iRedMail With Amacube

This may very well be my final post about my new anti-NSA Linux email server I setup on an Ubuntu VPS using iRedMail... No seriously, I think this should cover it.

iRedMail is a free Linux package you can use to stand up a really awesome email server that combines Roundcube, Postfix, Dovecot, Spamassasin, ClamAV, Amavis and others in a matter of minutes. The problem with the free version is that it doesn't allow you to easily manage your spam quarantine. For that, they want you to spend upwards of $600 for iRedMail pro.

Well if you are on a budget like me, $600 is too much, but I found a free alternative that is pretty easy to use. It takes advantage of the fact that the webmail interface iRedMail uses is Roundcube, which is fairly popular and has many different plugins you can add.

One of those plugins, Amacube, let's users manage their own email spam/virus quarantines!

After it's installed, it puts a little quarantine button in the upper right corner of the Roundcube interface:

Inside the quarantine you can see any messages that have been quarantined and the user can then delete, or release them if they want. I would show you a screen shot, but I deleted the quarantine before I wrote this up.

Anyway, if you want to manage your spam quarantine easily with Roundcube in iRedMail, you don't need to spend $600. Just get the Amacube plugin.
