I remember this guy starting this project in the office. I gave him a lot of help but in the end I think he got a basic webmail system working with it for his clan.
At some point, as soon as I get the skin for my phpBB from the designer, I'm going to intergrate SquirrelMail into phpBB. It won't be for awhile yet, but to help with this process I'll be using the latest development builds from SquirrelMail. Who are now starting to seperate their code/interface to make themes/skins easier to write/design. The question is ultimately which way around to do this... a phpBB Theme plugin for SquirrelMail, or a SquirrelMail MOD for phpBB. It will take a long time. I will need to read and understand the IMAP/Auth/Parsing commands and functions that SquirrelMail has.
I will be doing this in phases.
1: Login in and get a list of mails in the inbox.
2: Read an email and attachments. (Plain text, not HTML)
3: Implement folders.
4: Sending of an email.
5: HTML email viewing.
These are the basic 5 phases to go through, after which I'll work on a few other little features but that's the bulk of work to be done.
