Creating hotmail equivelant


We're looking to create a free web based email system. Does anyone have any recommendations of scripts available and any comments?

For what OS? I personally like Qmail, Horde IMP, Vpopmail and Vqregister to create a hotmail like system.

www.inter7.com
www.qmail.org
www.horde.org

Of course if you're using Windows, these programs won't run.

Webmail: Horde and SquirrelMail run on Windows, AFAIK.
Server: hmailserver, SmarterMail, and MailEnable all run on Windows

You're right, I was referring to Qmail, Vpopmail and Vqregister. I'll be clearer next time.

Honestly, I dont' think it would be possible to offer a HotMail equivelant service unless you are willing to come up with the kind of investment these companies make in terms of server, software and operational costs.

Scripts/Programs that enable similar services are socketmail, atmail, hivemail, phpmail. Your best bet would be to lookat a site like hotscripts.com and decide for yourself.
