    Anyone else having a problem with this?

    SquirrelMail 1.4.4 - when you try to add a subfolder, no other folders appear in the drop down menu.

    Is this a bug or what?

    I am having the same issue. It's BIG deal b/c one of our clients uses squirrelmail exclusively. I don't know what to do?!?!?!

    First thing to check:

    If you look under:

    /home/accoutname/mail/domainname/username

    do you see that the new folders are physically created? If so, they would be in the above directory along with the defaults of:

    INBOX.Drafts
    INBOX.Sent
    INBOX.Trash

    Creating IMAP folders can be a little confusing and users often create them under the wrong "tree." It may be nothing more than "subscription" issue depending on how they were added.

    If you see the folders in the directory report back how they are named.

    ACTUALLY

    You can make this work, but you have to edit a squirrelmail configuration. By default, squirrelmail doesn't allow subfolders....here's how to turn it on:

    pico /usr/local/cpanel/base/3rdparty/squirrelmail/config/config.php

    On line 56 change:
    Code:
    $show_contain_subfolders_option = false;
    to
    Code:
    $show_contain_subfolders_option = true;
    TAADAAAAAAA!!!!

    That only took me 12 hours to find. Sheesh!! :eek: :eek: :eek:
