NS WebMail

NS WebMail offers standard mail functions for POP3 inbox management. Mail is sent using SMTP protocol. It has been designed to be light and simple, to avoid having to use heavy IMAP or SQL servers, and it has full MIME support for incoming and outgoing mail. It is Perl-strict and mod_perl-compliant, and has security using HTTP authentication or cookies. LDAP connectors are also available (as optional plug-ins) for authentication and read-only address book. Two interfaces are available (with and without frames). It is able to recognize tags from spam detection software (Spamassassin is supported out of the box).

            Really good WebMail system

            Simple, easy to install, and works well
            Very nice piece of software. Simple, easy to
            install, works perfectly and doesn't require too
            many extra perl modules.

            Very simple
            OK, this software doesn't already have all the features you'll encounter in more elaborate systems, such as JWebMail or SQWebMail, but it was never so simple to install a webmail. A very good, light weight, system to have installed in my office computer.

            perl strict
            next stable version (0.7.6 or 0.7.7) will be perl-strict compliant

            The software is not really nice:

            It doesnt use strict.
            It doesnt use -w switch

            If one puts one strict, it spews out warnings and errors!
