webmail and slackware 9.1

Any recommendations for webmail suitable for slack 9.1?

sqwebmail does not work with sendmail as it needs maildirs
openwebmail does not work any more as perl 5.8.2 has dropped suidperl

I'm a SquirrelMail advocate, although I know that horde/imp is very popular

I use squirrelmail for my company.. it's easy to set up, looks pretty for the end user, and has online documentation for all of it's features.. so it keeps people off my back

There are only a couple of problems I've had with it.. we use an exchange server for email.. (it was there before I came

There aren't any plugins yet to support 'contact' public folders.. so all the contacts in the folders come up as emails.. and I couldn't get ldap to work..

Other then that though, it's great

Horde and Imp are great. You can also add Turba (contact manager), Kronolith, Calendar, Todo, notes and so many official add ons.
Squirrelmail is nice and pretty, but too smaller sometimes.
