squirrelmail service restored

We have upgraded to SquirrelMail 1.4.4, which appears to be working at the moment.

This is a big leap from 1.2.6, and so we expect that some people's configurations and address books may break (shac, looking at you)

register_globals now off

We turned off register_globals in our PHP configuration. This has been the default setting in new PHP releases for a long time now and the developers strongly recommend using the appropriate superglobal variable instead. If you notice any broken PHP scripts or you need help fixing any of yours, let us know.

squirrelmail disabled temporarily

Web mail users may have noticed that the web mail interface has changed.

SquirrelMail, the normal web mail application used at antiflux.org, has been disabled temporarily, and we have made IMP the default instead.

We will return to using SquirrelMail after sorting out some problems with the Debian package maintainers.

brand new certificates

Various SSL certificates have been changed because the old ones expired. You may have noticed if you use the IMAP/SSL, SMTP/SSL or webmail services.

You can either accept the new certificate every time (or permanently, if your system permits it), or you can obtain the new root certificate. This is the recommended option, since any future changes to the certificates used at antiflux.org will be transparent to you.

To obtain the new root certificate, go to http://www.antiflux.org/ca and download either of the files there. They're identical, but they have different extensions for different systems.

Once you have obtained the certificate, you will need to install it:

In Firefox or Thunderbird, go to Preferences -> Advanced -> Certificates -> Manage Certificates -> Authorities and Import the certificate contained in the file you just download. Note that Firefox and Thunderbird appear to manage their certificates independently of the underlying operating system, so you may have to install the certificate for both Firefox/Thunderbird and the OS.

For Mac OS X, download the PEM file to your desktop and double-click on it. This should start Keychain Access. You will be prompted to add the certificate to a keychain. Select X509Anchors and proceed.

For Windows, Internet Explorer should prompt you to install the certificate when you download it.
