Squirrelmail is absolutely the best. I use it exclusively. Never had a
problem. Its quick, reliable, LEAN, and full of customizations.
If you are looking for simple web email. then loko no further. SM is by
far the best.
BTW, RedHat, Mandrake, and MAC Web Server X are all now including
Squirrelmail with their baseline distros. They wouldnt do that if they
didnt feel it was the BEST!
See, for example: http://www.apple.com/server/web.html
