I am today (and will be for the next several weeks) at one such location. I
can report that changing the Apache conf file allowed me to get to the SM l=
screen, as soon as I logged in however the actual mail message were blocked=
the filter, confirming my suspicions that the filter is working on the word
"webmail" in the URL.
So (by SSH'ing into my home machine) I changed the name of "webmail.php" to=
"mymsga.php" and did a quick search and replace of all occurrences of the
string "webmail.php" in the files listed in my previous message, a quick
restart of Apache and... Hey presto I have unfiltered access to my emails.
An awful hack, but the whole thing (including testing) took around 15mins. I
don't relish having to repeat the exercise after any and every upgrade, but
And Paul, I agree with you entirely. The problem is that I am sometimes only
on site for a few days at some of these clients. They are not really
interested in changing their web filtering policies just to suit me...
Anyway, the main thing is, I now have fully functional SM installation and=
am thrilled to bits with it. I have even started discovering the joy of
plugins. I have just plugged in "login_auth" which allows me to put SM in a
password protected area of my website and not have to re-enter my credentia=
when logging on to SM. Genius!
Thanks to all!
