    My installation of squirrelmail does not work. When it starts it reports the following error:

    ERROR : Could not complete request.
    Query: CREATE "INBOX.Sent"
    Reason Given: CREATE failed: Can't create mailbox node /home/xxdomainxx/: Permission denied

    Note: xxdomainxx is whatever domain I have logged into..

    This doesn't surprise me as my accounts are under /home2/ instead of /home/

    My question is, where do I change this setting in squirrelmail to work with /home2/ ?

    Thanks in advance for ANY assistance!

    I'd just symlink /home/username to /home2/username. Any accounts I put outside of home are always symlinked to the home directory. That way if someone uses a script that needs the full path, it won't matter if it is located elsewhere.

    Symlink solution

    I understand how that would work, however, I've got a ton of clients accounts and to set up that link for each would take a year.

    There MUST be some way to configure the mail programs..it turns out that NeoMail is the only one working...Horde looks like it is but it doesn't see any mail.

    HELP PLEASE????

    You do mean by "My Installation". A Squirrel Mail you installed yourself or the Squirrel Mail cpanel installed in 3rdparty ?

    I didn't install it anywhere...

    It was installed as part of the Cpanel package..

    It is under /cpanel/3rdparty as usual

    Try contacting through an Email Client using IMAP instead of POP and see if it works (Do you see the messages, ..etc)
