I am trying to setup squirrelmail for my class as an alternate web access
to my small school's shoddy ms webmail system (which doesnt allow
off-network smtp access). I would like to use the smtp of my webserver, but
of course it requires that any smtp user first login to a mailbox actually
on the server to permit relaying from that user's ip.
For example, I can login to check my email at myemail@... (with
whatever program) and then for a short time my IP is logged. This permits
me to use squirrelmail to login to my school's imap server to check mail,
but i can only send mail for the time that my IP is logged (otherwise i get
the rcpthosts not permitted error of course).
There is a simple way around this that i can imagine:
If there were a plugin for squirrelmail that would smtp authenticate
anybody who logs in to just one email account that I could set up.
For example, I could setup an email account anybody@... Then the
plugin would transparently login every user to the anybody@...
mailbox only for the purpose of having their ip logged so they could use
smtp. The actual anybody@... password would never even be known by
anybody, it would just be in the script.
Does this make sense? How hard would a plugin be to make with this
