[vox] OT: Using SquirrelMail as web-mail on Linux + plugins


Dustin has been a long time user of SquirrelMail, and so have some ISP and
a few prominent LUGOD members. I have been using SM for only a few months,
but find it is very nice, and feature-filled.

SquirrelMail is a web-based mail client that permits you to use your web
server, a web browser, imap server and/or pop3 server, and SMTP
client/server in order to send and receive mail.
For my install, I am using qmail (SMTP server), Apache(with
php4.3.0,mod_ssl, and mod_dav(unrelated)), courier-imap, and a web

The reasons for this e-mail on the client, is that I have been playing
with the stable (1.2.10) tree as well as the soon-to-be-stable dev tree
(1.4.0) and the addition of new plugins.

Dustin told me at a meeting that sonic used a web based interface for
SpamAssassin access to users without using a shell.

So, I found the latest release, (v 2.0 beta) of the SpamAssassin plugin,
and after extensive re-writes and modification (about a 20k diff file) I
have a plugin that appears to work fairly well with 1.2.10 and 1.4.0.

Now, this is a very cool plugin. You can whitelist and blacklist addresses
explicitly, or when you see and e-mail message from someone you want to
block, you can block them by clicking on a link from the message and
choose to block the entire domain. You can manage your white/black-list
within squirrelmail, turn on and off filtering (I have not fixed this
feature for my install quite yet) and control extended analysis in
messages as well as custom subject munging - ALL from squirrelmail.

I submitted a diff-patch to the original author in hopes that many of the
fixes will be included in the next release.

Anyway, this was just such a cool application and also a very kewl plugin
that I had to mention it on these two lists.
