    Which is a good webmail interface, that can be used in Debian 3.1 (I mean something like squirrelmail or neomail or horde, etc...)?

    Is there any good howto for any of them?

    If you run ISPCOnfig, the easiest to install is UebiMiau. There is a pacakge that can be installed with the ISPConfig update function.

    Otherwise i can recommend squirrelmail, but i dont have an howto for that.

    I guess
    apt-get install squirrelmail
    will install Squirrelmail into Debian's default web site under /var/www. You can run
    apt-cache search squirrelmail
    to find the exact package name.

    I don't know the URL under which Squirrelmail can be accessed then, but I guess it's either http://<default_website>/squirrelmail or http://<default_website>/webmail

    Yes, I have really tried to install squirrelmail a day or two ago, but when i wanted to login using squirrelmail interface, it said that my imap server does not allow plain text logins or something like that.
    What can solve that problem?

    OK...it works now, but I had to add a c-client.cf file to /etc/ with following:
    Is this really risky? Is there any better method?

    Not really, as long as you connect from localhost to localhost.

    I haven't tried it, but the screenshots look nice. What I don't like very much is that it is programmed in Perl, not PHP. :(
