Colors are close to Ice theme.
http://www.squirrelmail.org/themes.php

Check your SquirrelMail configuration. Correctly configured interface should not show INBOX. prefix in special folders' names. INBOX prefix might be present only in configurations that have personal, shared and public namespaces.

Check image_buttons plugin. I suspect that you are not using it, because plugin does not add trailing |.

'Logged in:' line shows some kind of error in left_main.php modification. It is not username plugin, because plugin adds text in different location.

One more thing. I suspect that you are using copyrighted artwork by Arvid Axelsson. If you haven't got approval from Arvid, you can't distribute your modifications.

This was written as a quick and dirty test.
The colours are similar to Ice, but they haven't been copied from their.

Every since I have used SQ Mail I have had INBOX. folders !! If that isn't right, how do I sort it ??

I added '|' as it seemed to look OK late last night !! I do plan to change that top row of icons.

I added the code for the 'logged in:' I edited the image to remove the username !

Some of the icons are from Thunderbird, I had thought it was open source and presumed this included the images.. As I have no plans to distribute this I don't see a problem.

Thanks for your comments :)

http://www.quadrone.org/graphics/ - Qute is free for personal and fair use.

Sample. Standard SquirrelMail package + image_buttons plugin + msg_flags patch + standard color theme converted to web safe colors. Left folder listing with username plugin box and custom quota plugin. IMAP namespace differs from the one that is used in hmailserver, but you can have same layout without INBOX prefix in hmailserver.

:) Actually screenshot is not from standard SquirrelMail, but other modifications don't change the way interface looks.

$default_folder_prefix = '';
$trash_folder = 'Trash';
$sent_folder = 'Sent';
$draft_folder = 'Drafts';

Then move all data from INBOX.xxx folders to xxx folders and delete INBOX.xxx folders.

Apart from the fact that display of folder names is not user friendly? Users don't have to see INBOX. prefix, INBOX.xxx names are wider than xxx and you don't have to nest folders under INBOX in hmailserver's namespace.

Links to plugins:
* image buttons
* msg flags
* username
* quota

msg_flags plugin is actually a patch. it adds icons to left folder list and replaces text tags in message listing. image buttons plugin needs modifications in two squirrelmail scripts. username plugin depends on compatibility 1.3

If you want to enhance SquirrelMail, try doing it within existing plugin architecture. If you want to make visual mods, check SquirrelMail 1.5.2cvs templating and work with SquirrelMail developers. You are free to make your own mods of SquirrelMail, but if your mods are not part of core SquirrelMail scripts, you are doomed to reimplement them after each SquirrelMail release.

Please understand that this is not a place to discuss SquirrelMail issues. SquirrelMail uses different support channels.

1. You are talking to wrong people. This is not SquirrelMail Outlook support forum.

2. Enable display of PHP errors and set error_reporting to E_ALL

3. Ask SquirrelMail Outlook developers to fix borked error_box() function.

Hi spamoni,
I read your problemo and couldn't stop myself from answering it :D

If you haven't already solved this problem, please read on because i had the same problem.

Since the SquirrelMail Outlook Theme was developed by a Portugese dude, the folder names are incorrect in config/config.php

The developer decided to add an "s" to the end of some of the folder names. In config.php, scroll down to where it lists the following (around line 350 by default). It should read like one of the following:

a) if you have all your folders as subfolders of INBOX:

$default_move_to_trash = true;
$default_move_to_sent = true;
$default_save_as_draft = true;
$trash_folder = 'INBOX.Trash';
$sent_folder = 'INBOX.Sent';
$draft_folder = 'INBOX.Drafts';
$auto_expunge = true;
$delete_folder = false;


or b) if you don't have your folders as subfolders of Inbox:

$default_move_to_trash = true;
$default_move_to_sent = true;
$default_save_as_draft = true;
$trash_folder = 'Trash';
$sent_folder = 'Sent';
$draft_folder = 'Drafts';
$auto_expunge = true;
$delete_folder = false;


I hope this helps if your problem isn't fixed yet. :cry: BTW, sorry for the delayed response since i don't usually check this forum.
Please contact me via e-mail ryanhirth@aol.com for any further questions to ensure the quickest response possible.

Hi Ryan,

You are absolutely correct.
The configuration should be like the following.

$default_folder_prefix = '';
$trash_folder = 'INBOX.Trash';
$sent_folder = 'INBOX.Sent';
$draft_folder = 'INBOX.Drafts';
$default_move_to_trash = true;
$default_move_to_sent = true;
$default_save_as_draft = true;
$show_prefix_option = false;


Thanks for your Help!!!...

$trash_folder = 'Trash';

$draft_folder = 'Drafts';

hMailServer is not Cyrus or Courier. It does not store personal namespace under INBOX. SquirrelMail preset for hMailServer is wrong.
