Hi All - Can anyone make any recommendations for an Email reader that is:
#1 Web-Based? ... So I can be anywhere on Mac, PC, or Linux with a Browser ... without installing SW (like Thunderbird)
#2 And don't want Yahoo, Gmail, etc.
#3 And we all have private (ourdomain.com) Email addresses and use IMAP (not POP) on a Linux (LAMP) server as the EMail "home", if that matters

Thanks in advance everyone !

Kerio has a webmail view. Not nearly the cost of exchange either.

A few popular alternatives:
1. SquirrelMail
2. RoundCube
3. Horde

I tend to favor SquirrelMail a bit, though it kind of feels a little dated compared to the more modern RoundCube interface.  I haven't used Horde myself.

You can install more than one into separate subdirectories, if you want to evaluate them for your own needs.

Hi,
Can you clarify how your email is hosted?
It sounds like you are asking for webmail access essentially...If that's the case and you're running your own LAMP server. Squirrelmail and Horde are open source webmail systems that can probably be setup for your system, depending on what LAMP applications you're using.


Side note: If you're using the Opera web browser, it has an email client built in.

Cheers,
Josh

http://roundcube.net/ is a great webmail client.
http://www.horde.org/ is also good if you need more of a groupware option.

Thanks all. Initially I really like RoundCube ... does anyone know if it is fairly solid and bug-free for the most part? I am asking because I notice that the current version is 0.7.1.  Does that mean that they have not had their first "real" software release yet? (a 1.x.x release)
