Create the attach directory:

mkdir /var/www/www.thinkthinkdo.com/web/squirrelmail/attach
chown apache:apache /var/www/www.thinkthinkdo.com/web/squirrelmail/attach

Test the installation using http://www.thinkthinkdo.com/squirrelmail/src/configtest.php complains about some php setting (that i ignore for now) [[BR]]

ERROR: You have enabled any one of magic_quotes_runtime, magic_quotes_gpc or magic_quotes_sybase in your PHP configuration.
We recommend all those settings to be off. SquirrelMail may work with them on, but when experiencing stray backslashes in your mail or other strange behaviour, it may be advisable to turn them off.

To allow some user to access the admin options using the webmail (unter Optionen -> Administration):

echo web1_admin >> /var/www/www.roegergasse22.at/web/squirrelmail/config/admins
