|Squirrelmail set up|
Any experts out there.

Ok Im installing squirelmail on my domain.
The server is based in an adsl connection. What I have done is create a subdomain mail.example.com and installed the script within the correct location on the server (where the virtual host points)
If I visit mail.example.com I get my log in screen. I can log in with no problem. I compose an email and send it, it is received no problem by the recipient.
But If I reply to that email, or compose a new mail to be sent to me (from another account) it bounces.
Thanks in advance.

That sounds like a mail server misconfiguration rather than a problem with Squirrelmail which is just a web mail client.
What MTA are you using?

As Jam13 says; this is a problem with your mail server, not Squirrelmail.
If you're running Sendmail, the most common reason for a new install not accepting email straight away is that example.com has to be in your "localdomains" list.
I'm not using Sendmail at the moment, so to find the file, issue something like:
You then need to edit the file (use vi if you're familiar with it) and add example.com. It will probably already contain 127.0.0.1 and localhost.localdomain.
