When you have a backslash in your password, the
authentication with the IMAP-server doesn't succeed
and redirect.php gives you a 'unknown username or
incorrect password'.

It's already in the beginning of redirect.php that the
variable $secretkey doesn't contain the correct
password (but with double backslash).

Haven't done any further debugging/testing.

It is easy to reproduce: just set your password to
contain a backslash and let the fun begin.

    I'm a first time user of Squirrelmail & tried running ver 1.4 - in
    my set up it doesn't present any password to the IMAP
    server, irrespective of what is entered, and so only works if
    the user is configured with a blank password.
