    Hi peoples !

    After searching a long time for a solution of my problem with squirrelmail i found nothing what helps ! Thats why iam writing this new thread ;)

    After installing and conmfiguring Postfix, Cyrel, web-cyradm i have a full functional Email Server. I tried all szenarios. But this is not my problem, want only to tell that with the email server everything is ok.

    Now i installed via apt-get install squirrelmail the webmail interface. after changing the config/conf.php in this way below i now can create folders inside the inbox. i thought i can set the default folder prefix to nothing ('') but then i cant create any folder ! I get a message that i have no permission to create the folder. (Think he tries to create a folder outside the inbox. And thats i found out forbidden)
    Ok but i set the folder prefix to 'INBOX/' and now i can create the folders. But the names of the folders are not so beautiful.

    For example after creating a folder named 'test' inside the INBOX i get a folder named '.INBOX.test' inside the INBOX

    If i create some folders with Outlook it works fine, so it should be squirrelmails problem.

    If somebody knows how to fix that i would be very happy ;)

    and here comes a little part from my config.php of squirrelmail
    Code:
    $domain                 = trim(implode('', file('/etc/'.(file_exists('/etc/mailname')?'mail':'host').'name')));
    $imapServerAddress      = 'localhost';
    $imapPort               = 143;
    $useSendmail            = false;
    $smtpServerAddress      = 'localhost';
    $smtpPort               = 25;
    $sendmail_path          = '/usr/sbin/sendmail';
    $sendmail_args          = '-i -t';
    $pop_before_smtp        = false;
    $imap_server_type       = 'cyrus';
    $invert_time            = false;
    $optional_delimiter     = '.';
    $encode_header_key      = '';
    
    $default_folder_prefix          = 'INBOX/';
    $trash_folder                   = 'Trash';
    $sent_folder                    = 'Sent';
    $draft_folder                   = 'Drafts';
    $default_move_to_trash          = true;
    $default_move_to_sent           = true;
    $default_save_as_draft          = true;
    $show_prefix_option             = false;
    $list_special_folders_first     = true;
    $use_special_folder_color       = true;
    $auto_expunge                   = true;
    $default_sub_of_inbox           = true;
    $show_contain_subfolders_option = false;
    $default_unseen_notify          = 2;
    $default_unseen_type            = 1;
    $auto_create_special            = true;
    $delete_folder                  = false;
    $noselect_fix_enable            = false;

    I am not that expert in squirrel mail.But you can try by using "/" as the prefix folder name.Just give it a shot

    $useSendmail            = false;
    $smtpServerAddress      = 'localhost';
    $smtpPort               = 25;
    $sendmail_path          = '/usr/sbin/sendmail';
    $sendmail_args          = '-i -t';
    $pop_before_smtp        = false;
    $imap_server_type       = 'courier';
    $invert_time            = false;
