    Dear friends:

    Squirrelmail is just working due to precompiled packages, installed from Cpanel, in English... from Squirrelmail interface, it is not possible to change the language configuration... Spanish will be set up, but the language will be still english.

    I´ve seen various posts recomending to reconfigure packages in spanish, and then modifying files like config.php and default_pref... I think it is a hard work due to updating Squirrelmail in 50 servers active with Cpanel, assuming that Cpanel can restore again initial English packages during some updates.

    extracted from: /usr/local/cpanel/base/3rdparty/squirrelmail/locale/README.locales
    If you are using a regular SquirrelMail release, translations should be
    available from the SquirrelMail download page:

    Packaged translations are distributed in archives named


    For example:
    es_ES-1.5.0-20031201.tar.gz should contain the Spanish translation of SquirrelMail
    1.5.0 strings released on December 01, 2003. Translation is packaged with tar and

    Gettext translations should be placed in
    locale/<language_country>/LC_MESSAGES/ directory.
    Help files are placed in help/<language_country>/ directory.

    For example:
    Spanish translated strings should go to locale/es_ES/LC_MESSAGES/squirrelmail.po
    and compiled strings go to locale/es_ES/LC_MESSAGES/
    Spanish help files are stored in help/es_ES/ directory.

    Does Cpanel modify or update Squirrelmail packages during updates? Is there anyway to do it instead of modifying configurations of 50 servers working actually with Cpanel software?

    Any help will be welcome!!!
