second that. THe convenience is incredible. Case in point:

last month the family and I took a vacation. For several days we were
going to be at separate locations, so the kids would be without my
laptop (which carries separate accounts for each of them, I am the
best dad in the world!). I installed squirrelmail on my mail server,
pointed it at the IMAP server (dovecot) and the problem was solved, in
about 5 minutes. The whole family had mail access over the web without
mucking around with teaching them how to configure clients (and then
clean up afterwards!)  and so forth. easy peasy.
