About SquirrelMail

SquirrelMail is a software written in PHP that offers both a web-based email client and a proxy server for the IMAP protocol. Development on the webmail part of the project was started in 1999 by Nathan and Luke Ehresman and the first version was released on December 14, 1999. Since then SquirrelMail features have went through a lot of changes, turning it into one of the most popular webmail packages available. SquirrelMail can be easily integrated and used on any platform supporting PHP, but most commonly used platforms are Linux, FreeBSD, macOS and the server variants of Microsoft Windows.

SquirrelMail features can also be expanded through its plugin architecture that allows you to add additional features to the core application.
