    This is absolutely stunning. I was completely blown away by its interface. It looks so elegant.

    Does anybody know a free email service that uses RoundCube? I found Aventuremail but I have to shell out $5.00 and I'm not really comfortable with the idea of giving out my credit card number.

    How about you? How do you find RoundCube? :D

    I know! It looks very Apple-like. If .Mac adopts this kind of interface, then I'm sold! I'd be glad to subscribe to .mac for life!

    I'm a bit confused. Would this enable me to access my email inbox in a browser that is being served by OS X Server, so i could access it like gmail instead of just Thunderbird or Mail?:confused:

    Edit: Let me rephrase that, because it doesn't make much sense. I have OS X Server set up as a web and mail server. I can access my email with Mail and Thunderbird. Could I install RoundCube and access my email with a web browser like you can with GMail or Yahoo?

    Looks good, btw.

    From what I understand, yes. If you have your own email (as in you have your own domain name), then this will act like your webmail interface.

    Yup, that's what it's for. A more popular use would be web hosts using it as a web mail option for their clients.

    Loosely related, has anyone else just been upgraded to the beta of Yahoo's new mail interface? I have to say, although it's a little slow, it seems really nice. And actually very similar to Roundcube (which is why I mentioned it). It works in FF -- I'm not sure if it works in Safari, because I haven't tried it yet. :eek:

    Now if they would go back to offering free POP in the US... :rolleyes:
