Description Pete Deffendol 2004-06-30 13:23:36 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7)
Gecko/20040626 Firefox/0.9.1

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):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Squirrelmail using default configuration

Has uw-imap been replaced with Dovecot in Fedora then?
Comment 2 Warren Togami 2004-10-11 22:19:27 EDT
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.
Comment 3 Warren Togami 2004-10-20 21:46:49 EDT
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.

Comment 4 Pete Deffendol 2004-10-22 13:10:36 EDT
Tested on Fedora Core 2 by removing existing RPM and installing
squirrelmail-1.4.3a-5.noarch.rpm.  Problem solved!
