Did you login? And what exact page your trying to access? If its anything beyond the inital login page without logging in, you will get that error.

i may not understand your question

thanks for your quick reply. i may not understand your question. the exact page i am accessing is: substantis.com/webmail

this is the login prompt. this is not a separate and distinct issue where a squirrelmail user is logged in and then attempts to send mail or access an attachment and gets knocked off the system.

where would i be looking for error logs for this particular problem. i doubt that appache access logs would be of help. any other thoughts?

chown and chgrp nobody /var/lib/php/session

I solved this problem by issolating the php error log for this domain (see log below).
The problem was a permission setting for /var/lib/php/session. The suggestion for the solution came from the squirrelmail users list. All worked well after:

chown nobody /var/lib/php/session
chgrp nobody /var/lib/php/session
