Web mail app?

My web page (www.flamingduck.com) is hosted by 1and1. They have a web mail app but it is SLOWWWWWWWWWWW and really kind of sucks. I'd like to run one through my hosted site for two reasons; mainly I want faster access with a better interface, and I also think it would be nice to go to mail.flamingduck.com or whatever vs. webmail.1and1.com.

Are there any such apps out there? (SQL, PHP, etc...) Any and all recommendations are appreciated.

Thanks!

My hosts defaults to Squirrelmail, and I've been fairly happy with them. They don't have all the bells and whistles that gmail or yahoo may have, but it's plain and simple to use. (and it's free)

I have a free account (remember that deal?) and it doesn't support IMAP. Anything that supports POP3? Basically a web-based Outlook type program.

You can sign up an account at
http://my.inbox.com
and use its "external POP3" feature to get all POP3 emails. Make sure change "reply-to" to your 1and1 address.

The 3-year free account is expiring, isn't it?

Free or fee based? If you're willing to pay there's @mail (http://www.atmail.com/ ) or the much cheaper but almost as nice dwmail (http://www.dominion-web.com/products/dwmail/ ).

Free. Thanks for the links, though, DWMail looks to be exactly what I'm looking for. Surely there's some open-source project out there that does something similar.

There's something called roundcube (http://www.roundcube.net/ ), but it's still in beta stages.
