#439 Base URL (get_location) needs to be configurable


The base location of squirrelmail (as provided by
get_location()) can not always be detected correctly
(due to external factors like a SSL-proxy). Just like
other web apps, squirrelmail should have the option to
configure this location. The default should be
<detect>, which means: use the current detection code
from get_location.

Will look into this sometime, putting it here as a

    Is there any chance to implement this feature shortly? I am
    missing it very much, because using a SSL-proxy (that is
    offered by many shared webhosting providers to secure a
    connection) is not possible without this feature...

    Hello Markus,

    Did you try the recent 1.4.7? That doesn't resolve this
    request but I did add some tweaks to better handle your kind
    of situation and would like to know if it has any effect.

    I've applied a bug fix to current devel and stable CVS that
    allows one to configure the proto+hostname+port part of the
    base uri (optionally), so situations like this where that
    goes wrong can then be fixed by the administrator. I think
    we cannot further improve our heuristic because some things
    we just don't know.
