  1. Hi All, I've been a loyal Squirrelmail user, with a custom installation, for many years now, but have decided to move on due to various factors such as mobile access, etc. Between the two choices of Horde and Roundcube, I wanted to go for Horde because, as I understand, Roundcube next is coming sometime soon and I would like to spare my (older) users another getting-used-to experience. Also, Horde is optimized for mobile access it seems. With my existing Squirrelmail installation I had quite a few plugins that made my life easier - I cannot seem to find (most probably looking for wrong keywords?) how to install plugins and other customizations for Horde so would be grateful if someone could point me in the right direction. Things I would be interested in doing: - having a custom picture visible somewhere on the main screen eg with a logo - having a custom link to another webpage on the main screen - being able to download email from email servers via POP3 - auto BCC function - a login alias - choosing where to file on send - spellcheck - various identities - synchronizing calendar entries with my NAS, which uses CalDAV It may be that some of these are stock features of Horde. Also - how easy is it to install Horde? Squirrelmail I copied to a public html folder and pointed my browser at to install (well, more or less), but I read about how Horde requires Pearl or something like that? Grateful for any pointers!
  2. ok, thanks for the reply - so, potentially, with SPF my messages might be getting flagged as spam, if the recipient doesn't check against SPF records/doesn't do this properly - correct? what about domainkeys? as i understand this concerns only incoming messages - again, what's the practical effect, are any of them just marked as spam or rejected?
  3. hi all, i recently noticed, in the control panel, the option for email authentication (the two options are below). i've read the description but was wondering whether, in practice, there are any particular issues to take into account. e.g. do i need to configure my outlook settings differently (SSL?), will users now need to have some sort of certificate, etc - i don't anticipate that to be the case but was simply wondering what practical steps anyone needs to take and issues to keep in mind when activating these options, given they are not enabled by default (for a reason?). grateful for any guidance! DomainKeys DomainKeys is an e-mail authentication system that allows for incoming mail to be checked against the server it was sent from to verify that the mail has not been modified. This ensures that messages are actually coming from the listed sender and allows abusive messages to be tracked with more ease. SPF SPF will specify which machines are authorized to send email from your domain(s). This means that only mail sent through this server will appear as valid mail from your domain(s) when the SPF records are checked.
  4. just wanted to check on whether any solution is in sight...
  5. hi all, i have a custom squirrelmail installation that I'd really like to keep. since some time now (a couple of months), i can't attach files when composing emails - I could before. as i understand there's been an upgrade of PHP, which seems to be the problem. my attachment directory permissions are fine (no changes from before). the error I get is "Could not move/copy file. File not attached", as described here: http://www.phpbuilder.com/board/showthread.php?t=10239016 so, as I understand, I don't have access to the php.ini file, but could include a command in my .htaccess file (in which directory?) referring to upload_dir, so as to fix the problem. two questions: 1. would this work? (creating an .htaccess file - would it override the php.ini settings sitting in the server root?) 2. what should the line in .htaccess say, assuming my attachment directory, is, say, mydomain/attachments (i.e. one level immediately below the root, at the same level as the public_html directory, public_ftp directory, etc)? any hints appreciated!
  6. Hi there, Apologies in advance if this is the wrong sub-forum: I'm looking for a guestbook that I can install on my dad's website, for anyone who visits it to write an entry. To avoid spam-bots, I'd like to have control over what gets posted. Cpanel used to have a script for this but doesn't anymore - does anyone have any recommendations for a simple (in installation) guestbook somewhere?
  7. I've installed wordpress and came across the same error. i put in an .htaccess file in my upload directory, saying php_value upload_max_filesize 60m. When I try to upload though I still get a message saying that the upload is limited to 8mb. Any possible reason for that?
  8. <<Don´t know how it would work if you have your own installation but I would imagine it would be the same result.>> as I said, 404. ok, will ask helpdesk...
  9. quick Q: is it possible to use squirrelmail (i have my own installation), via https? if so, what do i need to do? any hints appreciated.
  10. thank you for that PHP script, it's exactly what I was looking for.
  11. hi, was wondering if anyone can give me any pointers on this, so that I do not have to do it for the person. thanks!
  12. ahem, not really - it does a full site backup, but not of a specific directory... if anyone does find anything, would be great to have.
  13. hi, is it the PHP one for cron that you once told me of? it was slightly messy (the output) and i'm not sure it uses SSL, or maybe you mean another one?
  14. guys, was wondering if anyone can recommend a method of automatically backing up a directory and FTPing it, optimally in a secure way (SSL?). i would prefer something that doesn't require installation of a special program to run at my end (ie running cuteFTP automatically at startup and having some sort of schedule), since I can have a local FTP server using the inbuilt features of WinXP... any recommendations?
  15. thanks, seems to be working now
  16. right, i try to paste in this: >[URL=http://www.tchstatus.com:8080/message/msn/testusername] [IMG=http://www.tchstatus.com:8080/msn/testusername][/URL] or this: >[URL="http://www.tchstatus.com:8080/message/msn/testusername"] [IMG=http://www.tchstatus.com:8080/msn/testusername][/URL] and in both cases i get the picture.one.gif error (ie the one i mentioned above).
