# The Bad

1) SqWebMail does not read the DICTIONARY environment variable from users' configuration files nor has any option in Preferences to specify the location of the Ispell hashed dictionary. The latter may be the best option for SqWebMail, as the Ispell hashed dictionaries are stored, by default, in /usr/pkg/lib. I have not tested the WORDLIST or INCLUDE_STRING envvars.

2) Group calendaring mode does not work at all. When adding an even to the calendar, the webmail server hangs. Local calendaring mode works without error.

3) Changing the system password via SqWebMail still doesn't work. I'm not sure if the problem is with tcl-expect. This message is printed to the console:

Jun  4 14:35:45 nixsys authdaemon.passwd: authdaemon: s_connect() failed: Connec
tion timed out

	make sqwebmail in pkgsrc-current
	Enable group calendaring mode as per the docu.
	Attempt to change the system password.
	Setenv DICTIONARY in .tcshrc and .profile, then run sqwebmail.
