This looks a little more energetic than I had planned, at least
initially.  I am not looking for an Outlook replacement plus I've never
used Squirrelmail so I don't know what all it provides.

That said, I'll give it a whirl.  I need to add that I have specific
needs as far as IMAP and SMTP (outbound) handling goes.  Those include 
Postfix, Dovecot, and PostgreSQL.  So that will twist how I want to do 
things.  I'll aim for as generic as possible so other MTA's, IMAP 
servers, and LDA's could be used with a little tweaking.
   Oops: Just like the man behind the curtain ignore the mention of LDA 
for now.  :-)

Jose, you still interested?
