in thread Looking for a perl webmail

I use AcmeMail, but I don't really like it - too many missing features (eg can't create folders, can't order by anything other than date received, no automatic saving of sent messages , etc)

The script itself isn't that friendly to install either. On the other hand, "Perl only" alternatives are hard to find - the only other one I found was called Wing, but depended on non-CPAN modules.

    If you like Wing, take a look at Prayer. It has all the features I need, and is very VERY fast. It's a stand-alone server written in C, and is GPLed.

    I find it better to do all the fancy stuff like filtering "in the server" (using procmail and spamassassin, which isn't strictly in the SMTP server I know) rather than in the client.

    Providing a webby interface to the user's .procmailrc (using perl/apache) shouldn't be hard, and neither should shimming a link to it into Prayer's pages.
