A better webmail

I have been trying out Horde, Squirrelmail and neomail. But none of those are quite what I am after. Has anyone any suggestions for a better one.

I liked squirrelmail but when I click on an email there is no way to move it to a different folder. Horde lets you easily move it to a folder but won't display many HTML e-mails (which unfortunately I have to receive). Neomail only lets you have one 'identity', I need to be able to send from several different addresses.

Any ideas? Preferably small as I will need to upload it on a 56k modem. It needs to do it via IMAP so I can access the folders on the server - and leave the messages on the server.

I've had a look through at sourceforge, but there are so many and they all claim to be good, but on a slow connection it takes a while, plus there is all the configuring. So if anyone has any experience with one with the features I am after I would be very greatfull for the suggestion...

I like Thunderbird for the desktop stuff. So far as Webmail, I use GMail and of which support POP3 and SMTP (not sure about IMAP) so I just use Thunderbird to access them. is pretty cool for a free service--lots of features-- But, (1) you have to wait 15min between checking your messages and (2) it is in german (which might not be a problem for you).

I think he meant webmail applications for use with his own mail server. Anyway I have only ever used squirelmail, so can't be of much help, but you could take a look at openwebmail.

Yes, not a webmail service like hotmail etc. I want it running on my server and getting e-mails from itself. I'll look at open webmail, but it's only any good if it has improved quite a bit from it's neomail ancestor. I need to be able to send from several e-mail addresses.
