    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

    Can you try
    Code:
    chown www-data /var/lib/squirrelmail/data
    ?

    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!

    also the same result, somehow still not writeable by www-data, chown'd the owner to www-data group www-data also still the same result, really got me on this one! world writable and it can't write? is it possibly jailkit or something?

    On my system the permissions are as follows:

    Code:
    server1:/var/lib/squirrelmail# ls -l
    total 4
    drwx-wx--- 2 root www-data 4096 Aug 11  2010 data
    server1:/var/lib/squirrelmail#
    Does /etc/squirrelmail/default_pref exist? What are the outputs of
    Code:
    ls -la /usr/share/squirrelmail/
    and
    Code:
    ls -la /etc/squirrelmail/
    ?

    Yea you got me as well. It works for the primary domain so I suppose that's good enough, just figured I'd let you know.

    Thanks for all the help and for trying! Mabye I'll take it over to the squirrelmail guys. See if they can figure it out.

    Again thanks Falko, your guides rock!
