    I've had this reported to in the Edge builds. They should be accessable from the other Webmail apps.

    There's a "mail" folder created in every mailusers directory with the latest edge. It seems that moving folders into the mail folder makes it visible for squirrelmail. Something amiss in the configuration?

    Here is a simple fix

    Greetings,

    A customer of ours has reported the same problem this morning. After making sure that the folders were still present inside the mailbox folder, and that the .mailboxlist file still had the folders listed, I was in the same exact situation.

    Fortunately it is extremely easy to correct by editing SquirrelMail configuration file inside cPanel's installation of SquirrelMail. Below are very detailed instructions on how to do it.

    • Change directory to the location where cPanel installs SquirrelMail's configuration file.
    cd /usr/local/cpanel/base/3rdparty/squirrelmail/config
    • Make a backup copy of the configuration file
    cp config.php config_backup.php
    • Edit the configuration file using your favorite editor.
    pico config.php
    • Find the following setting (on line 43):
    $default_folder_prefix = 'mail/';
    • Change it as follows:
    $default_folder_prefix = '';
    • Find the following setting (seven lines below):
    $show_prefix_option = true;
    • Change it as follows:
    $show_prefix_option = false;
    • Save the configuration file.

    Your users should now be able to see their folders in SquirrelMail once again.
