$config[‘plugins’] = array(‘cpanellogin’,’cpanellogout’,’archive’,’calendar’, ‘return_to_webmail’,’carddav’);

3- Add the name of the plugin that you wish to enable to the array above:

$config[‘plugins’] = array(‘cpanellogin’,’cpanellogout’,’archive’,’calendar’, ‘return_to_webmail’,’carddav’,’password’);

4- Save and exit the file

Change it :


$rcmail_config[‘zipdownload_attachments’] = 1;
