I've been playing with the latest SquirrelMail (1.2.6). I have to say
that this is one of the nicest webmail packages I've yet looked at. All
the others that I've tried have been exceedingly hard to get running on
my test machine; in fact, all of them, save for one, have been unusable
(unable to get them working right). The other one worked, but totally
pegged the CPU and caused Mozilla to crash. (I've looked at probably a
half-dozen so far.) Many congratulations and thanks to the SquirrelMail
developers; all it took was just a simple untar and a running of
conf.pl. It worked well, and it was fast and nice.
My problem is that I need some way to support multiple IMAP servers.
This could either be pre-defining a different IMAP server for each user,
or requiring the user to specify a server at login time. The issue is
that I need to support multiple mail servers behind a firewall and give
webmail access from the outside world. Moving the mail all onto one
machine is highly undesired and port forwarding to the internal machines
isn't wanted, either.
The documentation and configure script don't mention this, so I presume
it's not currently supported. I tried the 1.2.7 version from CVS with
no luck either. Is there some way to do this? Perhaps a patch or
plugin that someone knows about?
Any help is very much appreciated. I'd like to use SquirrelMail. (In
fact, I tried installing it on my mail server for my personal domain,
even though I'm very much a CLI junkie (see the User-Agent: header).
Unfortunately, it seems that PHP is having trouble on Sparc in Debian
woody, dying with segfaults and bus errors. :( )
