E-mail frontend/GUI

If I've set up a mail server, would it be hard to create a GUI interface for users to go to my domain website in their browser, input their username/password, then be logged into their Inbox like with Gmail or something? Just a simple layout. Or is just using 3rd party software such as Outlook or Thunderbird more plausible?

Look into Squirrelmail or Horde if you want a webmail look to it, or get them to use a local client with imap or pop/smtp. It's really down to you - do you want your users to store their mail locally or on your server or both?

Thanks, SquirrelMail is perfect (even though I'd prefer my own look for the webpage).
