SquirrelMail Administrator's Manual: Presets Next Previous Contents

13. Presets

This chapter lists SquirrelMail options set by D option in SquirrelMail configuration utility.

It can be used if user can't run configuration utility and changes options manually. Settings can be different if IMAP server uses shared folders.

Possible server values are:

  • bincimap = Binc IMAP server
  • courier = Courier IMAP server
  • cyrus = Cyrus IMAP server
  • dovecot = Dovecot Secure IMAP server
  • exchange = Microsoft Exchange IMAP server
  • hmailserver = hMailServer
  • macosx = Mac OS X Mailserver
  • mercury32 = Mercury/32
  • uw = University of Washington's IMAP server

13.1 default settings

These are generic settings that should work in some IMAP servers.

  • imap_server_type = other
  • default_folder_prefix = none (is set to empty string)
  • trash_folder = INBOX.Trash
  • sent_folder = INBOX.Sent
  • draft_folder = INBOX.Drafts
  • show_prefix_option = false
  • default_sub_of_inbox = true
  • show_contain_subfolders_option = false
  • optional_delimiter = detect
  • delete_folder = false
  • force_username_lowercase = false

13.2 cyrus preset

This preset is written for Cyrus IMAP.

  • imap_server_type = cyrus
  • default_folder_prefix = none (is set to empty string)

  • draft_folder = INBOX.Drafts
  • show_prefix_option = false

This preset is written for UW IMAPD.
