Ok, I'm running an Apache Webserver on a windows box. (Not my choice, believe me)

Its running hmailserver as an e-mail server, but now, when I try to login via squirrelmail, it accepts my username and password but gives me an error:

Error opening ../data/default_pref
Could not create initial preference file!
../data/ should be writable by user httpd
Please contact your system administrator and report this error.

I can't figure out what's wrong.

File permissions are non-existant in windows, correct? Can anyone help me? :4-dontkno

Error opening ../data/default_pref

arent those slashes the linux direction? so i think your error is that it thinks your on linux and not windows. I was confused at first with your post because I didnt not know squirrelmail ran on windows.

That's what I thought at first, but it includes support for hmailserver, which is a windows app.

So I don't know.... those slashes are in the wrong direction though, those are *nix slashes.

So should I use another IMAP webmail program?
