    Question Hosts w/AJAX webmail system? Is MT the only one other than yahoo/google?

    I'm currently with Apollo Hosting right now and, IMO, their webmail system (Horde) sucks. I've always disliked it--and now that some hosts are starting to offer these AJAX webmail systems similar to what's used by Yahoo, etc. I'm seriously considering switching.

    Media Temple looks the most intriguing right now. But are there any other Hosts though with webmail options other than the dated options offered by most hosts? Any recommendations?

    I'll just be using my host for a personal site but do use the storage and my own domain for all email. So the webmail really is key.

    Thanks,
    Scott

    RoundCube is a nice AJAX based webmail client which we have had a great experience with so far and it's popularity should be slowly spreading. I can't give any names of hosts using it, but you must be able to find some.

    Tuffmail offers Roundcube, and they are rock solid as an e-mail service provider.

    Also, Godaddy has a pretty neat webmail interface...

    SmarterMail is also AJAX based -- not sure about many others.

    Ugh. Apollo says I have to upgrade to their $36.95 virtual server plan to be able to do install RoundCube. Looks like I'm switching somewhere else.

    Zimbra is full-fledged email server rather than a webmail interface.

    Same goes for SmarterMail, but I don't understand where the Java comes in -- this should actually allow it to have much less overhead!

    Considering roundcube seems to of gotten a bit of a following by several hosts (from the discussions I had seen previously) you shouldn't have much difficulty finding several using roundcube or the like. That and I doubt there is any shortage in requests that hosts receive for ajax enabled webmail.

    I use roundcube for customers that are on different email servers.

    I have Merak for everyone else here: http://mail2.e-places.net

    But I have Roundcube in too and a LOT of people like it. I've only configured it to use one domain, but that's changeable and you can allow people to put their own mailservers in if you want.
