i recently explored webmail for my family and found "prayer", which is a
pure C application (no php, no perl) built on the uw-imap c-client library.
it's blindingly fast even for thousands of huge mailboxes stored in MH
format.  anyone who was using "the cloud" because they couldn't stand the
poor performance of the apache-based webmail systems should take a look.

<> is the home page.  though i
found it in freebsd </usr/ports/mail/prayer>.
