The recommended web based imap client

I have my own email server (Dovecot+Postfix), which is hosted on the same server as my portal (Centos 6.3) and I have installed  squirrel mail client and it is working fine with but branding it is not easy also embedding it in my web application is not easy.
    I have been through the internet and I found different other web based clients as roundcube, but unfortunately it is not clear with all these variates which one is easier in:
    1- Flexible branding
    2- Embed it in my web application (It will be great if any has a jquery plugin).
   Any advice please?

I didn't have any difficulty swapping the squirrelmail branding for company branding.  It's an image swap and a couple of configuration changes in the config file.

can you change this in the login window?
I've swapped the sqmail image in the login window to a company image (if you use a different size height and width, you'll need to also change in the config).  If you use a different image name, you'll need to change it in the config.
i used squirrelmail in the past, but switched over to roundcube some time ago.
Far better imho.

Was the switch over to rouncube easy without loosing the emails of the users? Was it easy to integrate the rouncube with your web application? I have heard as well about Horde, did you try it?

Roundcube is great except that updates for security vulnerabilities seem to be slow.  For that reason alone, I had to exclude rc from my list of options.
I have just finished installing the rc by the time I got the last comments :-( what security risk the rc has?
Without research, I can't say.  The latest release may very well be fine.
