Unfortunately it's not really as simple as it sounds. There's a lot of issues when building a web based email client, like mail format's, encoding (a real pain), javascript handling, security.... and that's just a simple one. It's not a quick and easy job.

Stumpy is definately right about that.. he helped me out with part of my testing for my mail client and it's still buggy at that... if you don't want to hassle with building your own, you can google for MailMan ... they have plenty of different mail managers out there that are pre built.. also check out gnu.org or sourceforge .. and devscripts

The hardest part of building a page that will pull html is definately the encoding.. it was a real pain in the arse to get it working..
