@greyhairweenie - sounds like you might have another client accessing your mailbox at the same time doing the filtering. If it is SquirrelMail doing that, you'll need to find the filtering rule that tells it to move some messages to the Junk folder. SquirrelMail doesn't do that by itself - you have to tell it to. You might want to contact your system administrator for more help - this isn't a help forum.

squirrelmail-1.4.18-1 keeps moving all my unread messages to "Junk". I can move them back to Inbox, and my filters execute and put the filtered ones into the appropriate folders, then a little while later they all are back in "Junk". ?????

@sirmafia -- SquirrelMail has a plugin that can interface with most quota systems. However, keep in mind that it's your responsibility to build a quota system into your mail server first -- SquirrelMail is only a mail *client* and does *not* manage user mailboxe. It will interface with your system and report the quota information in the webmail interface if configured correctly. See:

@rjrsousa -- SquirrelMail is an IMAP client, and IMAP servers can have all kinds of email account systems behind them. The beauty of SquirrelMail is that it works with ANY such system, but that's also why it can't create accounts out of the box. It'd have to know the gritty details of how the email accounts are implemented on your particular system. There are in fact some SquirrelMail plugins that allow you to create accounts on your server, but of course they only work on some systems. For more details, please see:

I've used SquirrelMail with Lynx and it works fairly well.

> do i create/manage user accounts???

As squirrelmail uses imap server for authorization, you have to create imap accounts. It depends on imap server you use, but many imap servers use plain system accounts. So, see man useradd.

Is it Possible?
I have webhosting through phpwebhosting and i believe they meet all of the requirements to run squirrelmail. Does anyone know if its possible to setup squirrelmail in a directory of my hosting space? I'm kinda new to this stuff and i've been trying to go through the install instructions but, im having some trouble.

How about adding links to local files w/ ACL - like a quasi-portal. Other webmails have done it.
