    You'll need a web server and an IMAP/POP3 server to make it work, and an LDAP or other directory server if you don't want to base identification/authentication on Linux accounts.

    Squirrelmail integrates readily with the Apache web server. For IMAP I like Dovecot, but cyrus will also work, probably others. My little setup has only a few users, so the scaling works for using Linux accounts. LDAP integration is a bit tougher, but I think you can find cookbooks for use with Squirrelmail and Apache.

    Glad to help. Squirrelmail is completely php-based, and is probably an excellent choice for your purposes.
