    for some reason when I transfered a site from ensim
    I had a problem with rendering the webmail unusable.
    You can go to it... I think there has to be a better way to set that up. (another thread)
    The user can't see the acutual mail in there account they just see an old copied blank box with a couple of miscellaneous folders that never existed before and can't be removed???
    Pop 3 mechanism still works like a charm.

    Anybody? Kind of desperate here suppose to transfer another 3 dozen sites this weekend.

    squirrel mail and horde seem not to work at all

    squirrel mail does not work you see four folder
    INBOX
    INBOX draft
    INBOX sent
    INBox trash
    all empty

    if you use neo instead seems to work one inbox with messages

    this is something from the squirrelmail faq:
    ==============================
    Why does my IMAP client show all my files in my home directory?

    As distributed, the IMAP server is connected to your home directory by default. It has no way of knowing what you might call "mail" as opposed to "some other file"; in fact, you can use IMAP to access any file.

    Most clients have an option to configure your connected directory on the IMAP server. For example, in Pine you can specify this as the "Path" in your folder-collection, e.g.

    Nickname : Secondary Folders
    Server : imap.blurdybloop.com
    Path : mail/
    View :

    In this example, the user is connected to the "mail" subdirectory of his home directory.

    Other servers call this the "folder prefix" or similar term.

    It is possible to modify the IMAP server so that all users are automatically connected to some other directory, e.g. a subdirectory of the user's home directory. Read the file CONFIG for more details.
    ====================================
    it can help.
