yawebmail is a webmail-client written in Java as a webapp. Having it
deployed on your Internet-accessed webserver, you can get access to your
POP3- or IMAP-Mailbox, even if you are behind a firewall that blocks the
eMail-ports - in general port 25 for SMTP, port 110 for POP3 and port 143
for IMAP (natch you must be allowed to access your webserver via HTTP...).
How does yawebmail compare with other webmail-clients?
While other webmail-clients may have a lot of bells and whistles,
yawebmail concentrates on the support of as many standards as possible.
Here's a short overview* (based on the feature-lists and FAQs of the
particular webmail-clients, as well as some personal tests):
*This overview is about supported standards, not about features. As a
matter of fact the compared clients may have larger feature-lists.
Just unzip the downloaded "yawebmail-n.n.n.zip" and throw the
"yawebmail.war"-file into the deployment-directory of your
Servlet-container (tomcat, jetty, weblogic, ..) and you're ready to go!
