You need two pieces of software for this setup.

1. an IMAP server: This will interface the Linux mailboxes with the webmail program. There are webmail apps that will hook directly into the mailboxes, but I tend to trust IMAP servers more. If you have an mbox setup, use UW-IMAP. For Maildir, use Courier-IMAP. Cyrus-IMAP is the best if you have a large expected user base.

2. A webmail program. THere is a plethora of them. I prefer Squirrelmail because it only requires PHP (IMAP extension not neccesary). If you do have the imap extensions available with PHP, Horde's IMP is very good as well.

So the setup will look like this

Mailbox <-> IMAP Server <-> Webmail app <-> Client browser

SquirrelMail is a good thing to try.

I liked both SquirrelMail & HordeMail ... both are very good :-)
