 +These instructions were tested on Slackware64 14.0 64-bit OS and the latest openwebmail-current.tar.gz ​(actually version 2.53)\\  
 +It means, you are configured and running Apache web server and Sendmail mailserver.
  
  
 +====== Install libraries and required packages ======
  
 +Using CPAN via CPAN.pm: <​code>​
 +perl -MCPAN -e shell                    [as root]
 +o conf prerequisites_policy ask

 +====== Install OpenWebMail ======
 +
 +  - First, download latest openwebmail:​ [[http://​openwebmail.org/​openwebmail/​download/​current/​|openwebmail-current.tar.gz]]
 +  - Create a directory wherever you want it, say "''/​ADISKS/​openwebm_inst''"​ and move the downloaded file "''​openwebmail-current.tar.gz''"​ into that directory.
 +  - Extract all files using the command <code bash>
 +tar -zxvBpf openwebmail-current.tar.gz
 +</​code>​ **Use "​tar"​ with "​-zxvBpf"​ option, due to strange file permissions inside that archive. I tried to untar it via midnight comander built-in archive tools, ans the //​wrapsuid//​ script would not work because of this... **
 +  - Move the extracted directory "''​cgi-bin/​openwebmail''"​ to "''/​var/​www/​cgi-bin/​openwebmail''"​
 +  - Move the extracted directory "''​data/​openwebmail''"​ to your webserver'​s //​DocumentRoot//​ (in a default Apache configuration,​ that will be "''/​var/​www/​openwebmail''"​)
 +  - Change directory to "''/​var/​www/​openwebmail''",​ delete the file ''​index.html''​ and run the command <code bash>
 +ln -s redirect.html index.html
 +</​code>​
 +  - Change directory to "''/​var/​www/​cgi-bin/​openwebmail''"​ and run the command <​code>​
 +perl misc/​tools/​wrapsuid/​wrapsuid.pl /​var/​www/​cgi-bin/​openwebmail
