I use squirrel mail for my webmail.  I've looked at other stuff in the 
past but nothing in the last few years.  Dovecot is just awesome as an 
IMAP server.  It's easy to set up, has a good wiki maintained by Timo 
(the author), and can do just about anything I've ever heard of for 
IMAP.  It is still updated quite frequently as it's relatively new but 
the updates have been utterly painless so far and Timo often replies 
within 24 hours to people that have problems of any kind.
