    Hello,

    Does anyone know how to install a SquirrelMail plugin? I've followed the instructions in README.plugins, but there is no "conf.pl" script anywhere in the SquirrelMail directories.

    Any ideas?

    Add them to config.php in /usr/local/cpanel/base/3rdparty/squirrelmail/config

    Be aware though that cPanel updates will overwrite the config.php.

    I notice that there is a config_local.php file where you can override config.php settings. Does this also get updated/overwritten? Could you put your plugin lines in there to preserve them since the cpanel config already calls this file?

    I've got this problem too - my plugins keep getting deleted..

    How often do the cPanel updates run?

    Is there a way I can manually run the updates to test this?

    Does it go something like this:

    chattr -R -i /usr/local/cpanel/base/3rdparty/squirrelmail/

    okay i've read a bit more and i think this will do it - but i can't test at the moment:

    chattr -R +i /usr/local/cpanel/base/3rdparty/squirrelmail/plugins

    Then to take it off (to add more plugins - if needed) it should be:

    chattr -R -i /usr/local/cpanel/base/3rdparty/squirrelmail/plugins

    Do these look right to anyone?

    The /usr/local/cpanel/src/3rdparty/gpl/README-squirlemail explains how to prevent cPanel from over-writing customizations to your Squirrelmail install.

    Thanks for the quick replies..

    Above solution won't save my plugins folder & i'm not comfortable customising it unfortunately.

    What if i were to just rename the file: /usr/local/cpanel/bin/update-squirrelmail

    That way the update won't happen at all - right?
