Akadido:

There are a few things you can do. I'm guessing you are wanting to run this on your own machine, or a machine on your lan, or a machine that you will be hosting from, right? If you're doing it on your machine or a machine on your lan you can either setup a mail server using your favorite flavor of operating system and mail software.. Personally, I'm using qmail for the mail server, vpopmail for authentication through pop, and to eliminate the ability to relay off of my server. Once you have your mail server up and running you can do a couple of things

1) write your own script or cgi to have people sign up for your mail accounts or download one that will work with vpopmail for example... I looked at the one called vqsignup, decided not to use it though, just my choice..

You can download all sorts of mail client software for webmail, or you can write your own client, it depends on you again.

Some options are: mail2php, NOCC, uebimiau, and some others.. Right now my project is to work on and build my own client for webmail users..

also, look at devscripts website for some webmail scripts that they have available for download..

click here to go to devscripts page for Email Management...

As for configuring it for windows, I'm not entirely sure.. Haven't messed around with windows mail management systems such as exchange.. and honestly, I don't know of any that are available for free..

Hope this helps..

You may also want to look into using Imp which is built on the horde application framework:

Try Imp:

Also, if you need single signon you can use this:
http://vkinetic.com/hordedev/

It uses the mySql database as a backend.
