Well if I wasn't clear the primary requirement is that it runs on
Windows.  Webmail is already available for this account, but presently
I'm setting up pop3d so a windows client on the lan can pop the Unix
maildir (which is already on their desktop via samba) from Netscape
mail, which is, in turn, saved in mbox format on the Unix disk, via the
same samba share. (SIGH)

It looks like Thunderbird could support maildir through extensions, but
one doesn't seem to exist.
