    PHP Webmail

    Hi All,

    I have been looking for a PHP IMAP Webmail solution for ages now, and have not yet come across one that i like. So far i have tried the following:

    Squirrelmail - Too Bland (free skin is rubbish).
    IMP - Too much of a pain to install. Didin't like the UI.
    HiveMail - No good for large sites (High CPU Usage).
    SocketMail - Lots of Bugs. Nasty UI.
    UebiMiou - Could not get it working. Basic IMAP Support.
    @Mail - Way to expensive. Perl Based.

    If you know of any that i have missed that are PHP based, have IMAP support, look sweet, and have a wysiwig editor...please let me know!

    Please try "IlohaMail" - a multilingual webmail program that is easy to use and install. You can refer this URL:

    Thanks for that Brightadmin....but still a bit too basic and bland for my needs.

    Mailman is very nice - I believe it is in PHP, but you will have to purchase it first as I think the code is obfuscated in the trial version.

    I didn't think HiveMail would use so much CPU power

    hmm...maybe I need another solution as well then.

    Hivemail is the WORST written program i have ever had the displeasure of using.

    Delivering 500 messages in a 1 minute period consumes so much CPU that it can't run anything else (P4 2.8ghz 1mb Cache, 1gb ram).

    Using Postfix+Courier barely raises the CPU usage above 10%

    Horde is a framework.
    while IMP is a component rely on Horde.

    coz IMP is the most famous component so you coud say Horde ~= IMP.

    There's lots of other components. like calendar and address book are rely on Horde as well.
