Manages IMAP or POP3 mailboxes via the Web

WebMail lets users manage IMAP or POP3 mailboxes via a WWW interface. It can give users access to their mailboxes from anywhere in the world. It is written in Java and should run at least on the most popular Unix platforms. On the client side, only a frames-capable browser is needed, no Javascript or Java. It has MIME support, supports multiple languages, and is fast compared to CGI scripts. WebMail is intended for small to medium ISPs, but it may also be used on a standalone home computer running on a Java capable platform. It also has some features for very high load servers (20000+ users).
