We are currently using IMP/Horde and this is what inspired us to write
our own :-)  It looks pretty, but internally it's not too pleasant and
there seems to have been at least one security hole per week advertised
on BugTraq over the last month or so.

I'll take a look at the Perl one.  When we started writing ReMail (some
time ago now...) I did conduct a search for other webmail programs, and
didn't come up with any suitable alternatives.
