I just started using Quotient, which is an open-source python based webmail app being developed by a company in the US. I'm actually paying (5 USD/mo) for the (alpha-) service (hosted on divmod.com , the project is hosted at divmod.org ). Be aware its still in development at the moment, and they only just started deploying it to 'customers'. You're free to download and run it on your own server (LGPL I think).

Yep, in both directions (it can check your pop3/imap, as well as using it as a server).

Postini and spambayes for spam protection, also will filter all list emails into their own folders automagically.
