    Hosted Email Client

    I have hundreds of email accounts and want to put them into a single email client. I need this email client accessible on a server so I can access it anywhere. What is a good solution for this?

    Thanks!

    Assuming you're talking about webmail, roundcube is your best choice. Other than that, you're probably referring to an email server program, not an email client.

    I am looking for something like Thunderbird but installable on my server so it can be accessed anywhere.

    If you're not specifically seeking a self-hosted solution, Google Apps.

    That would get very, very pricey at $10/user

    You could however try Office 365, setup forwarders for the domains and users, so you're only effectively paying for one user. That's how I do it right now. Added bonus? You get Office

    You're not understanding their pricing. The per user fee, without Vault, is only $5 (or less) per user per month. Within the context of a user, is a single Apps account.

    Within that one Apps account (i.e. user), you could setup an unlimited number of e-mail addresses... Either at your domain, imported from another provider, aliased, etc.

    I understand it just fine, believe me. I can do the same with exchange.

    The only difference? Apps is domain based. Exchange, I can setup the very same thing (forwarders). The catch though is that with exchange, I can add multiple domains, setup forwarders, and have everything just handled as one user. With google apps, you can't do that. You need a separate (paid) account per domain.

    It really depends on whether the OP has 100s of emails on the same domain, or on varying domains.

    Your best bet is to probably just setup a mail server you can get a vps and do this or a dedicated server. If your not very technical in nature you can get a managed server and they will help you with most everything you would need. Roundcube is good, or you can go for an exchange server.

    Have you looked at cerberus helpdesk?

    You can access multiple email accounts from the same inbox.

    Will the employees be using that all-in-one mailbox also or their own separate mailbox ? If their own separate mailbox, using a webmail client like roundcube, horde, or installing mailpile as a webmail client would work. Using something like Zimbra, Citadel, exchange with shared boxes would also work. Beyond that, using a ticket system like Cerberus or OSticket would work. A ticket system would be best for everyone accessing everything as then you will have logging in the ticket and can do granular permissions.

    Some would have a single email, managers would have access to more than one. Execs would have access to most.

    In that case cerberus would still work for that, but using exchange, zimbra or similar would most likely be better for a single mailbox multiple access point. You basically need to have a system that does read permissions for mailboxes and those would do that.

    Edit: also those have web based mail clients, with Zimbra I think having the better one.

    Ticket systems are not the same as email systems... I would highly suggest Zimbra.

    mail.google.com.

    Since you own the hundreds of email accounts, just add them on the pop3/imap tab.

    And ... it's 100% free.
