First, I like SquirrelMail! Very nice and easily expandable. I do have one
question however. It is slooow. Much slower that using Pine or even the
commercial VisualMail product I had been using previously. Slow enough in
fact, that even on a DSL connection, it takes sometime 30s or so to refresh
the folder list, 10s or so to proceed from one message to the next, etc.
I've been wondering if perhaps this is due to the IMAP layer?
I'm using the version of IMAP that came with Pine 4.44. The connect string
* OK [CAPABILITY IMAP4REV1 LOGIN-REFERRALS STARTTLS AUTH=LOGIN]
localhost.honk.org IMAP4rev1 2001.315 at Thu, 14 Mar 2002 12:33:05 -0500
It's running from inetd.conf thus:
imap stream tcp nowait.500 root /usr/local/bin/imapd imapd
Any thoughts as to why the system would be so slow?
Second, I've retooled the Weather plugin (v2.0.0 for Squirrelmail 1.2.5) by
Daniel B. Hemmerich to fetch and display Canadian weather from Environment
Canada. It's available at
Feedback, bug reports, etc are welcome.
