  • Not sure if my answer is still useful but just in case it is : You could try Webmin/Virtualmin - I had the same need and tried iRedMail and a couple of other, eventually settling in for Webmin.

How To Install iRedMail On Ubuntu 12.04 x64

I am working on this at the moment not working yet.

If you would like to create your own online e-mail system, you can use iRedMail. In this article we will explain how you can do it on your Ubuntu 12.04 virtual server.
My first attempt at setting up a mail server was with ISPConfig 3. It didn't work. My next attempt was with Virtualmin. It didn't work either. I spent many hours tinkering with it until it worked.
Even though I now have a working mail server, I am seriously considering paying for e-mail service. It's potentially less expensive for the number of users I have, and somebody else can deal with the headaches.
