    Hi,
    Strange problem came from one of our clients. If he logs in with main account (username) he can access any email account within his domain! In Horde he has folder domain.com under which he has folders for other email accounts. With Squirrelmail he can subscribe to any of those folders.

    Simple and pretty insistent question - how to fix it?


    (We are running WHM 10.6.0 cPanel 10.8.0-R14, CentOS 4.1 i686 - WHM X v3.1.0)

    Anton.

    Standard - not an error

    This is a standard feature and not an error.

    This makes it possible for the administrator to review any emails that are sent (via webmail) or received (and are still in the folder)

    I and many of my clients find this extremely useful, especially when you want to check what the users are doing.

    This is ONLY accessible to the main account - other users do not have access to this feature.

    Wait till you go to MailDir and that feature vanishes for good.

    Are you sure about that? I can login as a user and can see everything. How do I fix that?
