Hey, I am planning on buying a domain name, to offer visitors web based email... The domain will be gtnmail.com.
However, I really need a web based email script. Something like hotmail is what I'm aiming for. Users have to be able to sign up on the web, and login to their account, exactly like with hotmail.
If you could please help me find a script like this, I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks

Thanks for the tip. Well... Iv'e looked through all of that, but haven't found anything decent... It's all for check your own pop3. Put it this way; I need to make a hotmail. Basically its that, I need to offer a service like Hotmail, or Yahoomail... You know. If anyone could please help me find something like that, i'd appreciate it.

Well, if you feel like challanging yourself a web based email client that uses the local mail spools (on a Unix machine) isn't that hard to write.
I wrote one to teach myself PHP and it works pretty well (I haven't implemented attaching files or anything yet). The hardest part about it is effectivly parseing the messages out of the mail spool file that sendmail creates.
I can give you some pointers or example code if you do decide to embark on this venture.

Well to tell you the trusth, I'm not very good at PHP, I just started. I'm pretty good at setting things up, I just haven't had the time to learn PHP fully.
Go to phpwizard.net and checkout their projects and you'll find what u want.

The wrox php book has a good chapter on IMAP stuff, with code, that'll be a good place to start
