Hi All,

First of all, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Adolfo and 
I'm from Buenos Aires Argentina. I'm 27 years old. I've been programming 
for 8 over years. Initially, I did some low level c programming but then 
I jumped into web programming through php. I coded in php for 6 years or 
so until my current job where I do perl (mod_perl).
After looking at different opensource projects, I found this project 
interesting. I always like playing with imap protocol (In the past I 
built a private/group messaging based on imap in a site similar to fb) 
and javascript.
My idea is contributing to this project in my spare time, mainly because 
of two reasons: 1) Enjoying while I code 2) Giving something back to the 
opensource world.

By the way, I went through the tickets queue and I took one that didn't 
seem to hard to solve. I'm not sure if someone else already looked at 
it. Ticket #1486860

I think that there are two ways of fixing that.
1) avoid sending cookies with the secure flag on.
setcookie($name, $value, $exp, $cookie['path'], $cookie['domain'],
       rcube_https_check(), true);
2) Attached patch which I'm not sure if you agree with. I moved the 
https redirect logic from index.php to rcmail.php, right before 
initializing the session. The idea is to avoid setting a new ses id for 
the non secure request that is redirected to https. Basically, we do the 
redirect before any session handling, so it picks up the previous 
session stored under ssl.

Let me know what you think.
