In accordance with the Neomail thing, this allows you to access your Squirrelmail login on the forums. It adds your header, footer and headinclude data, and allows you to give special details to your members, such as their login username information etc...

Test site : http://www.darkblazes.com/forums/mail.php

All files needed are attached in the .zip file:)

A screenshot is coming next;)

Sorry...I didnt know;)

This is Squirrelmail based:)

heh, I use squirrelmail, I may try it later.

So does this integrate the vbulletin user base with squirrelmail user database? I know for a fact you use ensim ;) and Ensim uses the Users as mail boxes, so I am wondering how it works.

We use SquirrelMail, but how would you login remotely to 8 servers? ;)

@Webmasta -

I am currently working on this...It would be a great use:)

Unfortunately, I can only add email addresses via the Admin Control Panel...:(

hehe, shouldn't you edit your sig? It says that you're not here until Friday 20th September and cannot provide support. ;):D

This is just what I needed....Thank you!!!

How does the user access the login page from the forum index? There are no visible links....do I need to add a line or two somewhere?

That is purely up to you;)

You could add a Link in the "footer" template, or in the "usercp" template...

I personally do not link to it on my forums...I prefer to be one of the only people to know about it, other than Arunan:)

No problems;)

@Goldknight - Unfortunately, It appears that most people (including myself) who have Squirrelmail Webmail, have an Ensim Admin Control Panel...

This, according to my host, controls all mail and subdomain information, including htaccess files and users, and therefore it would be very difficult to make a signup hack;)

I can, however, make a signup form, for those of you who could add accounts manually;)

For some of you who might be getting a blank page when people in the groups other than admin try to access mail.php, just open mail.php and edit the groups in this line with the groups you want to have access :D (6):

if ($bbuserinfo[usergroupid]==2 or $bbuserinfo[usergroupid]==5 or $bbuserinfo[usergroupid]==6 or $bbuserinfo[usergroupid]==7 or $bbuserinfo[usergroupid]==8) {

I would like that if you still don't mind doing it. Thanks!

Is it possible to add a hack to vb that will check for new mail and post how many new mail messages they have as well?

I'm having some trouble getting users to log into the mail.php version when they cn log into the normail squirrelmail page.

will have another look at it.
