Does anyone have a favorite and very reliable web based email server? Kind of like SquirrelMail and the others. This would be on an apache system with MySQL and PHP4 running (I think ....

Looking for a full system that doesn't require 900 other things to be installed and working properly like some of the ones I've been trying.

Ummm, by server do you perhaps mean client?

No, a server. Such as PHP/MYSql or a CGI script or something that reads mail dirs and will let you send and receive email. Like hotmail....

Sorry to beat it to death, but that's a client. IMAP clients retrieve mail form IMAP servers. You're not asking for an IMAP server.

Geeze, I just looked at the requirements for squirrel mail and it's pretty hard to imagine requiring anything less than that.

FWIW, I use CMGI Mailspinner, which does require 901 things to be installed and working, plus is prohibitively expensive. But on the other hand, I have 3000 users and 125 GB of disk for the mail spool.

What are some of the alternatives to squirrel mail?

Are you running Windows? I could see where that could make this much more difficult.

Well actually I was looking for something along the lines of courier system. Which houses the imapd and also the imap client architecture all in 1. But there are problems with it that I don't even want to attempt. I have squirrel working, it's just using PHP in frames, and not in tables. So I'll have to play around with the PHP and have some fun with it to try and get it to work....

phpGroupware looks really nice. Haven't used it, though.

So you need to install the whole system? MTA, message store and client?

What exact OS are you running?

Courier looks nice, their webmail appears quite mature.

As far as fun goes, I found setting up web mail about as much fun as pounding nails into my eyesockets. There's no pleasing users. None.

IMP is pretty good, its not the easiest to setup though. It has pretty much anything you could want for webmail though, and its written in PHP, and can use either mysql or postgres, and has ldap support as well.
