Lightweight Webmail program

lfwmail is a lightweight webmail program. It will run with acceptable speed even on a Pentium 100Mhz GNU/Linux mailserver. It has just basic features and no calendar or folders, but it is fully MIME capable and can handle attachments. It is also very secure when you use https encryption, and can be used without cookies enabled. It converts HTML messages to ASCII for security reasons, but you can still see the HTML versions if you want. You can run it in mod_perl if you want; response time will be very fast, but for most people normal cgi-bin is good enough.
