    SPECIFICATIONS:
    Plesk 7.5.1
    Red Hat Enterprise 3
    Webmail client – SquirrelMail version 1.4.3a-7.EL3

    PROBLEM:
    1.)
    When USER-A login to www.domain.com/webmail – username: test@domain.com everything is OK, USER-A is able to login to read and compose messages.

    2.)
    When USER-A login to www.domain.com/webmail - username: test
    everything is OK, BUT, when USER-A tries to compose a message and send it, this message is sent from USER-B’s account.

    I have only seen this problem with one user/account on the server, but I think it is a bit disturbing, especially if it where to happened to other users/accounts.

    Have any one come across this problem before?


    Thank you!
    Regards
    Frej

    With Squirrelmail you should always log in with the full email address as the username or you will have problems... that's been my experience anyway.

    Here's what I did...

    I edited the login.php file in squirrelmail to add text that users should use their full email address. I also added some javascript to ensure that they entered the domain part (i.e. @domain.com) in the username field.

    It's a pain, but it works.
