I'm considering installing user-space squirrelmail (I have my reasons), and if I decide to do it, I will document how I went about it, what worked and what didn't, and then I'll post a tutorial. Note that I haven't fully decided yet if I'm going to do it or not. So something may come of this, and something may not.

Given the date, I guess this fell to the wayside.

 

Just to leave a signpost here - be very careful installing Squirrelmail in userspace.

From my understanding of PHP, you will be allowing anyone to access your address book, downloads, and potentially other information.

 

I sort-of worked around this with scgi-bin, but I'm still icked about it (and if I could get the server side one "fixed", I'd use that).

You raise a very valid point that I did not think about prior to your mentioning it. A user-space Squirrelmail install may not be completely secure. I'll have to do some tinkering.
