There are a few possibilities, such as Squrrelmail, Uebimiau and others. Most of them are terrible. :)

The least bad, in my opinion, is AtMail - there's a commercial version (which is good but expensive), or a free community version (which is passably good, and free!):

[atmail.com...]
[atmail.org...] (for the free version)

You can use gmail and connect the accounts via POP3 or IMAP.

Squirrelmail has worked for me... but task demand is not that great (about 300 users). Not sure how it scales.

I will throw a vote in for squirrelmail as well.

My demand is about the same as tangor's but it does handle it well.

I think squirrel has to be IMAP.

Squirrelmail scales quite well to large multi-user environments. It is used by one of the largest ISPs in the Netherlands as their default webmail system. The main problem I see with it is the lack of development. They are in the 1.4 series now for several years, and the development of the promising 1.5 version with a more graphical GUI seems to be stopped. The good thing is that maintenance and security fixes for the 1.4 series are still available. I use Squirrelmail as the de facto webmail software on my systems. It works, but especially the HTML-mode viewer is not impressive. Also messages with HTML embedded in the main message don't display very well.

I have recently done a few installations with OpengroupWare (OGo) and Scalable OpengroupWare (SOGo). The functionality is impressive but it is a significant amount of work to get it working. OGo is a groupware application which offers also document management, task planning etc. SOGo is simpler in its functionality and focuses mainly on email, but it has a more appealing user interface than OGo and scales easily to several thousand users.
