Until the 1.4 series greets us, you can use the following latest patch
for Japanese compatibility on 1.2.9. Masato has been working on the
Japanese patch for a long time, and updates it very quickly to address

And here is where the latest patch for 1.2.9 is available.
The latest patch (for 1.2.9) is squirrelmail-1.2.9-ja-20021125-patch.gz.
There are also rpms available for Red Hat Linux 7.2 and 7.3 (8.0 ones
will be prepared soon - now getting the build machine ready).
There is also a mailing list (in Japanese) for Japanese language
If Deano, you find a bug specific to Japanese use or in the Japanese
patch, please report it to the mailing list
( squirrelmail-users@... ) and we will follow-it up. If it is

the changes are relevant to the Japanese compatibility code for future
the (.org) releases, they will be sent up stream.
There is a growing user base of SquirrelMail in Japan and in the
Japanese language, being used personally and in production environments.
(To give one example) I personally have integrated the Japanese capable
SquirrelMail into an environment of around 150 users, and they seem happy.
I hope this is of some help.
