Please try mod_php instead of FastCGI.

Agreed, I've switched the site to mod-php and it's still just sending me the file.

If you would like a site for reference, one of the site's I'm having issues with is http://drinkingironchef.com/webmail

Actually after I've tried it from a work computer it was opening login page. So enabling mod_php helped!! I've clicked on your link and it shows login page. You might want to clear your browser's cache.

After I enter info and hit login I get this error

Still does the same thing.
Code:
Error opening ../config/default_pref
Could not create initial preference file!
/var/lib/squirrelmail/data/ should be writable by user www-data
Please contact your system administrator and report this error.
Also I'd just like to say thanks to all trying to help I appreciate it a bunch!
