I upgraded the system to the latest OS version. I was having some problems with yum and open a support ticket with my vps company. All is set now.
It was an 11.25 build, I try to stay as current as possible with my updates.
As far as I know there are no custom file setups... below is the results of those commands.
stat /scripts/preupcp /scripts/postupcp:
grep -Hin "" /scripts/preupcp /scripts/postupcp:
# stat /scripts/preupcp /scripts/postupcp

Yes I have modified squirrelmail. typically after each update I modify the new updated file again (which is why I manually update the system and not have it set for auto updates.) I have never had a problem in the past doing it this way, the system updates squirrelmail, I make my modification and so on.
# grep -Hin "" /scripts/preupcp /scripts/postupcp
grep: /scripts/preupcp: No such file or directory
I even tried deleting the squirrelmail directory and force upcp. it writes the squirrelmail directory but still is missing the config file.
It's not a big deal since I got it up and running, just seems to be odd behavior.
