squirrelmail folder issue
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hi,

I just updated squirrelmail on one of the installations and have found a strange problem. Somehow squirrelmail now shows multiple folders for Draft, Sent and Trash. I deleted those folders from the disk, however when i login to squirrelmail, they are still appearing.

To make things clear, i am attaching an image which shows multiple folders for Draft, Sent and Trash.

I use postfix and dovecot, and hence have configured squirrelmail settings for the same.

The folder showing up in Black are the ones which shouldn't be displayed.

Will appreciate if someone can help me clear this problem.

Thanks.

Does this happen for all mail accounts, or only for some?

Did you do some modifications to your system before you noticed this?

Nope, this is strange, its happening only with one user. Perhaps by the time it happened, i had already changed the config for squirrelmail.

Now i don't know for this one user, how do i get rid of this additional folders. I have already tried to delete the prefs file created by squirrelmail, but it doesn't help.

Can you go to the Maildir/ directory of that account and post the output of
Code:

ls -la
?

Got it :)

PHP Code:

cat subscriptions 
INBOX
.Sent
INBOX
.Trash
INBOX
.Drafts
Sent
Trash
Drafts 

Removed the last 3 lines and relogged in via squirrelmail, and its ok now.

Thanks for the help.
