user/mailbox name case munging

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


FreeBSD-12.3 & 13.1

We have this situation. Our mailstore is a Cyrus-imapd-3.0.17 installation
sitting behind a Postfix-3.7.2 MTA.  Our webmail (Squirrelmail) host connects
over ssl using the imap server host for authentication.

We have encountered a situation where one of our staff logged onto the webmail
service using all caps instead of the expected all lowercase mailbox name.  In
so doing they successfully logged but their webmail configuration was gone.

Postfix munges all mailbox names to lowercase which probably explains this
behaviour.  Squirrelmail evidently does not.  Can SM be configured to do so?
