I run OSX 10.2 Server,
I run sendmail and washington IMAP, with a homemade ssl certificate
(operating on port 993 instead of 143)
it works fine sending and reciving mail for all my users.
I wanted to set up so users can access their mail from the road aswell,
and found out squirrelmail can do this.
OSX 10.2 Server comes preinstalled with something called Webmail (it's
squirrelmail v 1.2.7) , but not configed.
it also come with a very weak tutorial on how you should enable this
webmail on your box.
I followed that.
1. run the script in /etc/squirrelmail/config/conf.pl
set it up using sendmail and uw IMAP.
my IP is set to 127.0.0.1 / localhost
2. Updated to PHP 4.2.3
3. Enabled PHP in httpd.conf
4. Included httpd_squirrelmail.conf in my virtual host blocks and added
index.php as default doc.
When I surf to http://www.mydomain.com/WebMail
I come to the login page.
I type in my username and password.
this is what I get:
SquirrelMail version 1.2.7

You must be logged in to access this page.
Go to the login page
I checked the support on squirrelmail.org
I tried everything it said (http://www.squirrelmail.org/wiki/LoginError)
But I still get the same error.
I found this in /private/tmp
under a session file with a long random name, (it changes file name
everytime you try to login)
was an error contacting the mail server.";s:46:"T$

I talked to the guy behind the php 4.2.3 module, his name is Marc (
he said: "well all i can say is that if your software requires gettext,
it will simply not work with my php module... "
"that is strange because my module does not support the "gettext"
features which that piece of software you're trying to run seems to
So this might be the issue then?
I would like to know if anyone have a solution, or even got
squirrelmail to work on OSX server 10.2
