The whole idea of drafting us in is we avoid using pre-existing systems but the problem I can see, correct me if Im wrong is that squirrelmail access's a pop3 account correct? if this is the case how do i go about making thousands of email accounts? probably 10-15 will be added/changed/removed each day!
What Im after is a method of grabbing any incoming email and pushing this to a PHP file, from here I can then do basic spam checks, remove unknown users and a variety of other tasks as well such as linking to existing contacts and the like.
Its a very confusing topic and tbh, a lot of even the most hardcore of PHP coders have never really touched or looked into it before, I am aware of a |pipe feature built into the cpanel system that can push emails from sendmail to a CGI php script, however this throws an error for me when attempting it so was trying to find a better solution.
Any ideas how Squirrelmail would work? (its already installed on server as part of cpanel)
