    Is there anyway to prevent a user from changing their password via the webmail program? I would only one this function on one e-mail address and not server-wide? I doubt that there is, but thought I would ask here to double check.

    Dear sparek-3,

    You can define what default SquirrelMail settings that users will receive when they log in. Try these settings,

    Create the necessary database and tables in MySQL, so that SquirrelMail can store the address books and user preferences there :

    cd /usr/local/mysql/bin
    ./mysql --password=\"mysql-root-pwd\"
    CREATE DATABASE squirrelmail;
    GRANT select,insert,update,delete ON squirrelmail.*
    TO squirreluser@localhost IDENTIFIED BY \'squirrelpassword\';

    Here you can restrict the privilege for the user using GRANT command. For more information regarding this refer the URL:

    Regards,
