Squirrelmail has jumped the shark.

I have a lot of people complain about the interface. It's an engineers 
interface to webmail, it works, but it's not pretty. Having said that it 
is quite possible to fix it.

A lot of users do like the interface of Horde IMP, but as an 
administrator I get tired of constantly patching security holes and the 
bloat that goes with it.

I got pointed to Iholamail (http://iholamail.souceforge.net/) by a 
fellow SAGE-AU member, and I have to say I am impressed. It's 
sufficiently featured to make users happy, and it is lightweight.

It's not Gmail quick, but it's quick.
