I had installed fedora7 and squirrelmail 1.5.1.

IMAP Server : Dovecot
SMTP Server : Postfix
Web Server : Apache 2
Php Version : 5.2.2

I had configured squirrelmail. The funcionality is well in firefox browser.

When i browse the mail in a windows xp os system with IE, It shows the previously viewed pages after signout from squirrelmail. while pressing the Back button of the IE.

The error reproduceable in IE 6 and IE 7.

I don't know what is the problem.

    This is not a bug.

    Internet Explorer stores pages in a cache ; when you press the back button the local copy is reloaded.
    If you're not happy with this you can disable the cache using header("Cache-Control: no-cache, must-revalidate");
    Otherwise you should close the browser window after logging out and clear temporary internet files, but your account is not compromised anyway.

    I don't entirely agree with the response bouchon.

    If OP is accessing resources at an internet cafe, they might not have the ability to close the browser (kiosk mode), they're stuck. If their installation of SquirrelMail is hosted by a service provider, and they don't have the ability to edit the code, they're again... stuck.

    If this indeed the case or being able to go back even after logging out, then it is indeed a bug, and we should review the situation.
