This is a summary of feature request #581 and patch #486 that provides the feature.
The purpose of the patches is to display the *reason* for an IMAP login failure.
Prior to this patch squirrelmail just displays the message:
Unknown user or password incorrect.
It can be useful to a user to know the reason that login is refused, eg there might
be an administrative lock or their password may have expired.
For this to work the following configuration variable must be set true:
Also enclosed is a patch to config/conf.pl to set this variable.
This is predicated on IMAP returning a meaningful reason, this is beyond the scope
of this patch and is why it is configurable.
There are two patch files:
config-conf.pl.patch for config/conf.pl
functions-imap_general.php.patch for functions/imap_general.php
These patches are released under the same license as the rest of SquirrelMail: GPLv2 (or later)
