Is that a good or bad news?
BTW: I really had no time to make some real readme/install/etc files... I apologize for that. Also because I should give credits, for instance, to the author of the webmail_slogo icon...
I'm waiting for feedback and suggestions...
Bye,

I just submitted to xoops.org the last updated version of this module, which includes, for instance, a new icon set based on everaldo's crystal one and an italian language pack which I just finished to realize.
Concerning the error which kaotik gets:
I have no idea yet, I'm also a bit in hurry. The only thing I could imagine now is a files/directories permission trouble. I post again the solution which worked for me:
(after uploading the whole WebMailFX directory)
a)CHMOD 775 /modules/WebMailFX
b)CHMOD 777 /modules/WebMailFX/attachments
c)CHMOD 777 /modules/WebMailFX/cache
d)CHMOD 777 /modules/WebMailFX/tmp
b)CHMOD 777 /modules/WebMailFX/cache/config.php

I changed all the icons, now based on the everaldo's crystal icon set. All images, including the module icon by sbkiller, are now in png format. I updated all related files, and I'll test it as soon as possible. I also started the module translation in my mother language (italian). Hope to upload new version within 2/3 days.
Any feedback from users?
Where you able to get it working after installing?
Cheers,
ft

I like the icon really a lot.
Tonight I'll upload an updated version including the new icon.

The webmail version of which we're talking is exactly the webmail2 fixed. That's why actually, when downloading the original by the authors website, only the .zip was named WebMail2.zip: after unpacking it, it was simply WebMail.

Here is the page of my website where I stored the debugged package:

http://lnx.trashnight.org/modules/mydownloads/viewcat.php?cid=3

For lazy xoopers here is a direct link to the download:

http://lnx.trashnight.org/modules/mydownloads/visit.php?cid=3&lid=13

Have fun!
P.S.1: by using the module I noticed there's (probably) another "redirect bug" which appears when you try to edit an address that you stored in the address book. I'd love suggestions for fixing that.
P.S:2: I would like somebody to create a "real" XOOPS module icon for this module. I have no time yet. I'll probably try, but is somebody is faster than me and would submit it...
Bye!

Getting the webmail module to work

Here is the procedure I followed for getting this module to work. I decided to share immediately this infos with a community that I really like!

GENERAL
The "WebMail" module is a pop3/IMAP client, based on "Mailbox" by Sivaprasad R.L -http://netlogger.net - and "eMailBox" by Don Grabowski -http://ecomjunk.com - which has been written by Jochen Gererstorfer -http://gererstorfer.net - and released, in its most recent version, on November 21st 2002.
The "WebMail" module lets administors and users manage multiple pop3/IMAP based e-mail accounts, sending and receiving messages, managing contacts with an address book, etc...

FIXING THE MODULE
If you download the module "as is", install it and try to get it work you'll be disappointed: the module doesn't work.
This is due to some minor errors in the php code which could be easily fixed. In this early stage, I fixed the ones
related to main functionalities of the module. There are still some to fix, which appears to be minor.
Here is a step-by-step procedure to fix the module:

1.Download the original module from here:

http://gererstorfer.net/modules/mydownloads/visit.php?lid=73

2.Extract the WebMail2.zip file: you should get a "tree like this":

Webmail
/xvpics
/admin
/attachments
/cache
/images
/language
/english
/german
/sql
/tmp

3.Let's start fixing things:
a)There's a first problem which can be fixed by changing line 40 of admin/index.php to:

redirect_header(XOOPS_URL."/admin.php",1,_AM_DBUPDATED);

b)There is a second problem which seems to appear when using the module in the "Single Account Mode". It is solved by
editing line 146 in /settings.php to:

<form method=post action='settings.php' name=formpost>

c)There is a third problem related to SQL table structure in sql/mysql.sql. According to the original file, passwordhash
is deserved a 20 characters long field. By using rc4encryption, this 20 characters field will allow only 6 characters
passwords. Just change the value from 20 to 30, for example. Here it's your choice, according to you preferences. As example,
my line looks like this:

passwd varchar(30) default NULL,

4.Save all modified files and upload the whole "WebMail" directory in your server.
5.Final touch:
a)CHMOD 775 /modules/WebMail
b)CHMOD 777 /modules/WebMail/attachments
c)CHMOD 777 /modules/WebMail/cache
d)CHMOD 777 /modules/WebMail/tmp
b)CHMOD 777 /modules/WebMail/cache/config.php
6.Install the module via the Xooops "Admin Menu" and enjoy.

Quote:
Suppressing error messages is not a fix!

I did not suppressed any error message. The module was not working simply because of some minor bugs/errors in the php code. I only followed the instructions I found on the authors website, applied all replacement to the code, made a minor change in the lenght of the "pwd" field in the sql and got it working.
As I said several times: I'm not a programmer, only a passionate person. I wanted this module to work and now it works. That's it.
Concerning the people asking putting online the "debugged" one: I mailed the author and asked permission. If I'll get no answer by tomorrow, I'll submit, at least, a step-by-step guide of all changes I made.
Bye,
ft

That sounds really great, and I have no words to thank you.
Just tell me if I could help in some ways, like bug hunting, testing, etc...
