    Squirrel Mail Bug

    When 'logging out' of squirrel mail and then trying to log back in, say to check a different email account, you are taken back into the script as the 'main' account...

    I've now tested this on two of my own accounts, seems the 'logout.php' isn't deleting the session or cookie...!?!

    Due to it calling to "/webmaill" which requires logging via HTTP realm, will be cached until you close windows. Even sessions in squirrelmail was destroyed, but the browser still caches username, and Cpanel uses that information to automatically log you into squirrelmail.

    This is the reply we received from cPanel:

    "This is not a bug. It is due to HTTP authentication. Your browser is holding the user/pass in it's cache. cPanel has no control over what info your browser holds in it's cache. You will need to close your browser after you have logged out of squirrel mail. Then, you can open a new browser to check another account. Thanks."

    This not only happens with squirrelmail, but also the Cpanel logout function, which is not consistency. I believe Cpanel could overwrite ENVIRONMENT variables on ports 2093,94,95,96. But they don’t care to do it for some reason!?!

    We use Squirrellmail as well however we recommend each time they clear cache and cookies before trying what you just mentioned. That or place a no cache header ;) Then you might not have that problem.
