20 I'm glad I persevered with eGroupware - it looks as if it should be
21 superb. While I'm still only beginning the learning curve, its features
22 do seem to be just what I was looking for.
24 One (of many) problems I'm having, however, relate to configuration/email...
26 At the setup phase, I get this rather un-nerving warning:

31 However, I've installed PEAR::Auth_SASL - and running the command gives me:
33 > $ pear install Auth_SASL
34 > Ignoring installed package pear/Auth_SASL
35 > Nothing to install
36 > $ pear -V

43 I've included the pear version info because all the problems I've found
44 via google have related to a Pear version of below 1.6.1.
46 Stumped by why the installation test for SASL failed, I ploughed on to
47 see where it took me. The answer to this, is as far as trying to access
48 my (working) IMAP server... eGroupware reports:
49 > *The connection to the IMAP Server failed!!*
50 >

52 I'm stumped as to quite what is wrong - it might be that SASL isn't
53 working; it might be that eGroupware is having a strop that my SSL Cert
54 for my IMAP server doesn't match the FQDN I'm using... or it might mean
55 that I've been bamboozled about how to configure eGroupware and it needs
56 me to configure usernames/passwords somewhere I've not found. Any hints
57 about this would be much appreciated.
59 On a more positive note, the address book (once I've got the hang of it)
60 combined with Infolog (assuming it continues to behave as it appears to
61 at the moment) are exactly what I was looking for. What's more, I'm
62 loving the integrated document management, issue tracker - and might
63 even make use of the timesheet facility in future. eGroupware is an
64 excellent find... Thanks... (all I need to do now is overcome the
65 configuration glitches...)
