    Can anyone offer a good 3rd party email program. I have clients who are interested in getting a better laid out email system. Which I think is good. Horde is not very customization.

    So any thoughts?

    Thanks

    Have you tried atmail open that can be added in WHM > Manage Plugins area? It is the 4th webmail program we provide (Horde, Squirrelmail and Roundcube being the other 3).

    It depends on whether you want my opinion from a system administration standpoint versus a user standpoint. Squirrelmail rarely breaks because it uses flat files without any SQL at all. Due to the simplicity, it doesn't have a lot of options, but it also rarely doesn't work.

    From a looks standpoint, atmail open does look pretty good, but it doesn't have error handling by default. This makes it rather esoteric for troubleshooting purposes.

    I would say that Roundcube is likely the most used of the webmail clients. There is also decent logging for Roundcube on errors at /var/cpanel/roundcube/log location.

    Ok while these are great, their user interface is very basic. I am just looking at all the options, both free and paid solutions. Thanks Tristan for your input. Any other paid or free email programs that are good?

    cPanel only provides the open source version of Atmail as a plugin. However, you could implement the commercial version yourself using the instructions available on the following document:

    Integrating Custom Webmail Applications

    Thank you.
