My webhosts installed Horde as the webmail client, but it is quite terrible in comparison to modern software like Gmail, and its very slow.

  • I installed the Free and opensource RoundCube via FTP, but probably due to its mail exchange protocol (IMAP) it doesn't always show received mails, and works unreliably.

  • What else can I try?

  • Have you used any FTP-installable webmail software with success?

As far as I know, all webmail software uses IMAP. – grawity Sep 25 '09 at 13:38

squirrelmail should work ok, though you'll have to edit 2-3 cfg files roundcube requires a database, if I am correct

I've used SquirrelMail several times before, and it should be installable without additional tools. – Ben Doom Sep 23 '09 at 15:30
