For squirrel I see the change_sqlpass plugin is there but I believe it is not working although I did follow the article but it looks not working as expected
This script will try to check some aspects of your SquirrelMail configuration and point you to errors whereever it can find them. You need to go run conf.pl in the config/ directory first before you run this script.
SquirrelMail version: 1.4.22-2.el6

Checking PHP configuration...

variables_order OK: GPCS.
PHP extensions OK. Dynamic loading is disabled.
ERROR: You have configured PHP not to allow short tags (short_open_tag=off). This shouldn't be a problem with SquirrelMail or any plugin coded coded according to the SquirrelMail Coding Guidelines, but if you experience problems with PHP code being displayed in some of the pages and changing setting to "on" solves the problem, please file a bug report against the failing plugin. The correct contact information is most likely to be found in the plugin documentation.
