good webmail client, any suggestions?

I'm searching for a good webmail client (to install for a couple of customres).
It can be in PHP or Perl, with IMAP or POP3 support (optionally mysql is supported on our servers, but of course will be better if it's "database free").

ATM i've only taken a look at SquirrelMail, quite nice but a bit raw (the graphic side should be better and/or more flexible).

I've found Open Webmail at sourceforge and Horde+IMP (we are testing atm).

The web is full of free soft that do the work, it's impossible to test all.

Have someone good suggestions?

Well perhaps this may be of use. http://fusemail.com/ It is the project my brother in law is currently working on.

Thanks, really nice, the "Fused Platform" seems quite interesting.
But sadly i need something that can be installed on our servers (is your brother planning to release the sourcecode? ^^).

No sorry. :P I don't think that is in the cards.

Stargate.com uses IMail. It's certainly the nicest webmail client I've come across. It's far better than what most universities use (WebMail v3.X), and it's far better than what RoadRunner uses (might be proprietary). It is very simple to add domain-wide email rules, add aliases, administer accounts, etc.

When I get some kind of spam, it takes me about 20 seconds to login and add a domain-wide rule to stop it (i.e. if header contains webpicks.net, delete it, or if body contains track.gogleoffers.com, delete it).

I suppose it's not the prettiest thing out there when compared to other webmail systems that use a ton of javascript and/or ActiveX to make it look like Outlook in a browser... but then the pages also come up faster because of that.

Thanks for the suggestion brett, but at the end we have decided to use Squirrel (probably adding some light graphic to it).
