Configuration Request

I have attached a copy of an email I sent to the list earlier last week. 
It should help you with the domain problem. If nothing else, perhaps it 
will give you some idea of how to accomplish what you wish to.

Off hand, if you did not use this to auto-config the domain name, then 
perhaps you could at least have the PHP script parse your to 
the value of your username variable.

Ok, so our company hosts several domains on one server. When 
implementing a software such as roundcube, we like to have one central 
install that eases the pains fo configuring and maintaining. Each domain 
hosted simply references the central install via sym-links.

Anyways, whether that makes sense or not, I wanted to setup a way that 
the login screen would figure out the mail server domain name without me 
having to manually set it in a config file or the user inputting it at 
each login. So, I basically switched out line 33 of with 
this line:

$rcmail_config['default_host'] = 'mail.' . '' . str_replace("www. <http://www.>", "", $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST']);  

Basically, it takes the address in the address bar, removes the "www. <http://www.>" 
and adds "mail." to the beginning of the domain name.

Ex) <> to to

I am sure this all seems very basic and straight forward to the more 
seasoned programmer, but I was excited about getting it to work.

Hope it helps others in some way.
