    Hello Guys,

    I get this error when opening squiirelmail :

    Error opening ../data/default_pref
    Could not create initial preference file!
    /home/username/.sqmaildata should be writable by user eurrom
    Please contact your system administrator and report this error.

    hordemail is working fine. Noemail says Can't create your user directory!


    any idea would be highl;y appreciated

    Well, if the error message is correct,

    chown eurrom:eurrom /home/eurrom/.sqmaildata
    chmod 755 /home/eurrom/.sqmaildata

    Should do the trick.

    No problem. Glad it worked. (I've had similar issues before).
