We were faced with creating a web client that was "fully featured". The problem we had was "fully featured" meant that it was a web based Outlook clone that would attach to an Exchange 5.5 server.

You really must know what features that the user(s) want and see if it is feasable. With the above scenario that was more work than it was worth.

If you are looking for a Perl based webclient that runs on a webserver I have had much success with a NeoMail client (fully Perl) on some other webservers I maintain. You can even upload your address book from popular email clients. Now this may not be as fully featured as having a commercial email client running on the local PC but it seems to meet many needs. If you are looking for spam control then I strongly encourage you to go the route of spamassassin (which is also Perl based) as mentioned earlier. If configured correctly it is the best on the market.

Writing your own will take some time, especially if you are trying to "tackle" all of the features.

Good Luck..
