Dear Experts,

I have configured squirrelmail with Courier IMAP on RHEL 4.
The problem is that when I am trying to login on Squirrelmail,it is giving a error message that is given below:
Error opening ../data/default_pref
Default preference file not found or not readable!
Please contact your system administrator and report this error.

I have that default_pref file in the data folder of the squirrelmail folder.
The location is : /usr/local/squirrelmail/data/default_pref.
The data folder contains 2 files.One is default_pref.Another one is index.php.
The contents of the default file is given below:
full_name=
reply_to=
chosen_theme=. ./themes/default_theme.php
show_html_default=0
folder_sizes_on_folder_page=1
folder_sizes_left_link=1
folder_sizes_subtotals=1

The permission given to this default_pref file is -rwxrwxrwx.
File owner is Apache
File group is Apache

Please help me out to solve this problem and let me know whether any additional configurations are to be made.

Thanks and Regards,
PAG-EAST

Dear all,
We have changed the permission of that file to 777 and it worked.
Thanks a lot for your precious time.
