fyi - openbsd 3.8 squirrelmail php bug and imap-uw
I ran into something w/ squirrelmail on openBSD 3.8
with uw imap needing plain text login and with a php
bug causing timeouts
short answer - use flavor "plaintext" with imap-uw instead
of trying edit of /etc/c-client.cf - and use imap serverside
sort option on squirrelmail - or manually update/patch php4 - ughh
NOTES - longwinded for those who may care,
and for google, else read no further
from the front of squirrelmail.org
"SquirrelMail and PHP 4.4.1 issues
Nov 07, 2005 by Tomas Kuliavas
PHP developers released PHP 4.4.1 version on 2005-10-31.
Security fixes introduced bug, which affects three SquirrelMail
functions. If your SquirrelMail install does not use server
side sorting, PHP bug can create infinite loop in message display.
If you are using PHP 4.4.1, you should update it to 4.4.x-dev or apply
(or as a quick fix set squirrel mail to serverside sort)
# cd /usr/ports/mail/imap-uw
# env FLAVOR=plaintext make install
And that fixed it. --- then I had to do some changes to php.ini
and change some squirrel mail settings because the version of php w/ 3.8
has issues with imap or the version of imap has issues with php...
anywho changing things like squirrelmail to have imap sort help..
(be sure to exercise it with some attachements before you think its good
