Description of problem:
In /etc/squirrelmail/config.php, the default setting of:
$default_folder_prefix = 'mail/';
conflicts with Dovecot's setting to place mailbox folders in ~/mail/.
As a result, Squirrelmail looks in ~/mail/mail for mail folders.
Shouldn't this line in config.php be set to:
$default_folder_prefix = '';
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Squirrelmail using default configuration
Has uw-imap been replaced with Dovecot in Fedora then?
uw-imap has been completely dropped because it is terrible. dovecot
and cyrus-imapd are two supported IMAP servers provided in FC2+.
This is not something we can easily fix in a correct way.
But I did so anyway. config_local.php in a NEW install (not upgrade)
is now dovecot compatible by default. This will be the case for FC3
and RHEL4. Please test this.
Tested on Fedora Core 2 by removing existing RPM and installing
squirrelmail-1.4.3a-5.noarch.rpm. Problem solved!
