    Ok, the squirrelmail version in cpanel as it stands is version 1.4.0, very outdated... is there anyway to upgrade this? I have read forums where those who have tried to update it got caught with incompatibilities... apparently cPanel overwrites some of the files and messes it up... I would like to upgrade manualy to the newest version. Is there any way I can do this? There are some plugins that I would like to offer that do not work on 1.4.0.

    Actualy, that helps out a lot more than the first reply, and let me tell you why. I am not upgrading for personal use, I am upgrading for all my clients... And telling 100 so people "Hey, change what you have been doing and go here instead" and losing a whole lotta data, bad idea. This upgrading to 1.4.3, good diea.

    Thanks Zappz.
