In squirrelmail I get the following error on the Left Hand Navigation

ERROR : Could not complete request. CREATE "INBOX.Sent" Reason Given:
Permission denied

Also when I set up an imap account I have to remove the 'special
Sent/Outgoing/deleted because I get a similar permission denied error.

I am using the allowunixsep = yes .. not sure if this is related tho?

I did some googling and found some solutions for squirrelmail.

i.e. --> SMTP --> cyrus

 etc but it isn't a squirrelmail specific error since it is the same

Any ideas?


Hi Troy,

I believe that this is really a SquirrelMail issue.

IIRC, when I changed my Cyrus installation to use the unixhierarchysep,
I needed to change the SM config under Command 3 (Folder Defaults),
items 3, 4 and 5 to INBOX/Trash, INBOX/Sent and INBOX/Drafts,
respectively (note the "/" rather than the "." seperator). Someone on
the SM list would probably know more about that, though.
