    I have Fedora 7 installed and followed Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier And MySQL (Fedora Core 5) with some adjustments for 7.

    I can send and recieve with Eudora without a problem.

    But I want to be able to use webmail as well, so I installed SquirrelMail.
    When I login to SquirrelMail I get the following error in the left menu (see the attachted screen shot):

    ERROR: Could not complete request.
    Query: CREATE "Sent"
    Reason Given: Invalid mailbox name.

    I searched for a sollution, but the one that is offered, doesn't seem to work.
    In /etc/squirrelmail/config.php changed I changed:
    $default_folder_prefix = 'mail/';
    $default_folder_prefix = 'INBOX.';

    Can someone please give me directions how to solve this?

    Yes, it does help big time :)
    Its working now.
    Explanation from squirrelmail.org WIKI is kinda confusing
    because I thought I need to comment out/remove $default_folder_prefix from /etc/squirrelmail/config_local.php file which in my case did not work, so I tried to comment out in /etc/squirrelmail/config.php file and it worked,
    Anyway, thanks for replying!
