Problems installing SquirrelMail


#1

So I lost some functions when Dreamhost switched from Squirrelmail to Atmail. So I decided to try to install SquirrelMail onto my server so I could use it once again over AtMail. Was able to upload it and get the config script running. My problem is that I ran the configtest url and it said everything was fine, but when I try to log in, I get

Warning: Illegal string offset ‘INBOX.’ in /home/horangee/horangee-noon.com/squirrelmail/functions/imap_general.php on line 708

Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/horangee/horangee-noon.com/squirrelmail/functions/imap_general.php:708) in /home/horangee/horangee-noon.com/squirrelmail/functions/global.php on line 550

I’ve tried Google and cant seem to find any info about this error for SquirrelMail. Nothing on the SquirrelMail discussions groups either. Hoping a good Samaritan will pass by and be able to help. Thanks.

I’m frustrated by the lack of features in atmail and support suggested I install Squirrel Mail myself but I don’t know that I could be successful…

Using a stable version snapshots (1.4.23-svn) of SquirrelMail solved the error reported above (Warning: Illegal string offset ‘INBOX.’…)

I encountered the same error when I installed 1.4.22 in my dreamhost account. Switching to 1.4.23 resolved it.

Installation and configuration were straightforward. I followed section 3.3 of the SquirrelMail documentation:
