    I dont understand the Squirrelmail install by Cpanel. So a user logs into his control panel. He has 20 email accounts setup. He clicks on webmail, then squirrelmail. Which email account did he just log into?

    Our installation is a standalone installation and not Cpanels. Our users can access Squirrelmail from anywhere on the net. They get their login boxes and every account has access to their own version of Squirrelmail.

    By not giving the login box for Squirrelmail from the Cpanel menu, you just automatically login and you dont know whos account is using it. :confused:

    hmm... It is very clear that sqmail logs in to the mailbox of the username you used to access the control panel

    So in case you accessed using 2082/2083 you will be using your main domain username.

    This means you will read your main account mailbox.

    If you want to read a pop account mail you will have to use 2095/2096 and login using the full address.

    Its not very clear at all because there were no docs supplied. Anyway. So if its the username used to access the control panel how will i log into the other email accounts? Those are not just pop account they are proper GUI accounts. At least you could log into Horde using them so you should be able to log into SQMail with them also.

    Not from my installation of Squirrelmail. I can log into any. The point is Cpanels way of having the user log into is very inefficient!

    Are you trying to give your users a direct login URL for squirrelmail for individual mail boxes?

    What do you mean by proper GUI accounts?

    Cpanel made the auto login because the users did not like to enter the username twice.

    using https://www.domain.com:2096 you will be able to login to the sqmail using the username that you used in the Auth Box that the browser popups for you.

    Just go directly to http://theirdomain.com/webmail It will ask for a username and password and then they will be presented with the three webmail options.

    Hi,

    I've got squirrelmail installed separately as well - it was done to provide my clients behind corporate firewalls access to their squirrelmail, as the /webmail port of 2095 is firewalled from a couple of their offices.

    i'd rather just use webmail/ - is there any way to get that script to respond on port 80 as well??

    thanks,
    andrew

    Perhaps you could put a link to it from your httpd.conf file just like your other squirrelmail install. Call it /wmail and then link it to /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/share/smail or whatever it's called.

    One major problem I saw on build-in Squirrelmail on Cpanel is it cannot logout. When click logout, it does show logged out. But you still not able to login with different username. And Cpanel has insist to do nothing with this problem. :confused:

    It was modified to log in using the Username and Password you enter when you log in to the control panel (2082/2083) or webmail (2095/2096). That's why it won't log out correctly.

    Did you ever check the date of this post? It's almost a year old.
