How to block a user from using squirrelmail ?


I wanted to block a specific user from using squirrelmail. I don't want him to check mails using his squirrelmail, but he always has the POP3 access from just our official network.

Any suggestion ?

If your user has a static ip address you can use .htaccess to deny access to squirrelmail based on that ip.
Other than that I don't see how it can be done in apache/squirrelmail.

there is a plugin for squirrel "squirrelmail-lockout" which does exactly that. You find it on the squirrelmail plugin Page.
