IMP and Proftpd config proposal

    I think SW-Soft should enable the following settings by default in /etc/psa-horde/imp/conf.php

    $conf['mailbox']['show_attachments'] = true;
    $conf['mailbox']['show_preview'] = true;
    $conf['mailbox']['show_xpriority'] = true;
    And perhaps also add these ones in /etc/proftpd.conf:

    TimeoutIdle                     900
    TimeoutNoTransfer        900
    PassivePorts                    49152 65534
    TimesGMT                        Off
    The PassivePorts directive can be pretty usefull when you have a firewall enabled on the server. But i'm still waiting for Plesk to add a feature to work with port-ranges in the firewall module .. instead of single port lists.

    $conf['mailbox']['show_attachments'] really loads server (it must open every email in mailbox to see it there attachment inside or not). If a lot of your customers use webmail it will be a problem. I think the same problem with other two options, but not too huge as attachment.

    Are you really sure ? Is that knowledge based on facts or just a wild guess?

    I mean .. even for the subject to appear the system has to open the mail or not?

    They might also want to change the following in /etc/psa-horde/imp/conf.php
    $conf['spam']['reporting'] = true;
    $conf['notspam']['reporting'] = true;
    and in /etc/proftpd.conf
    DenyFilter \*.*/
    The DenyFilter will help to prevent a serious problem that would make Proftpd consume all the memory on the server when it receives a certain command. But that is only part of the solution. The other half is to upgrade proftpd to 1.2.2
