sqmail version: 1.4.18

When a user creates a password for their account containing UTF-8 characters they are unable to log into squirrel mail as it expects only ISO-8859-1 strings.

This can be fixed by running the password through a utf8_decode in the login script.

    1.4.18 was released in 2009. Start by installing a current version (preferably 1.4.23SVN snapshot), set default charset to utf-8 and ask again if still having issues.

    I'm able to reproduce this on a cPanel server running SVN revision 14346 (which is what cPanel is currently providing.) I don't have access to a mail server that isn't running cPanel for more detailed testing.

    Inside cPanel, I set my email password to ͶͲΓΔΛΞΠΦΨΩЛЖШЯתثشكي then log in. The other mail clients will work, but Squirrelmail shows a blank page.

    Is it possible this is fixed in a newer revision, and we just need to update?

    Thanks,
