 Over the last several weeks, I have installed many drupal configurations.
 When I own the machine and I have a shell, this has been relatively easy.

 I am stranded on one install because I can't get a shell on the host.

 On others,  I am finding that I can not install Listhandler/Mailhandler
 because they assume that I am able to recompile PHP to add the --imap... 

 However, when I look at SquirrelMail, I do not have to recompile PHP 
 to get it working. And I am able to just use the Imap libraries that they

 It would be much nicer if the PHP did not require the recompile. And it would
 be nice if I could just load in something like the SquirellMail libraries
 and have it run on a machine which I do not have root on.

 The underlaying assumption that I have a) root b) a shell c) the ability
 to recompile system configurations is one that does not work on 
 various webhosting sites.
