    Roundcube would be run on a server to provide webmail, but I don't think that is what you are after.

    Who is your email provider now? If your provider like Gmail or iCloud.com offers a web mail service you can access that through the Safari web browser in Mavericks. Is that what you are after?

    I'm hosting my own mail server.

    I see, so then it looks like you would need to add something like Roundcube to your server to allow webmail access. I have no experience with Roundcube, so can't offer you any help with it.

    Roundcube requires PHP/MySQL or possibly other databases.

    You'll need to run the latest version required by RoundCube if Mavericks does not have it installed.

    You then enter the server information to configure Roundcube.

    However, I believe you can enable webmail from within Mac Server and use their interface instead of roundcube.

    There is no webmail interface built into Server 3 (Mac OS X Mavericks). I have installed Roundcube on a couple of servers using various guides found on the web. Have another to do next week and will be using Roundcube Installer to do this one as it looks a lot less hassle than manually fiddling with the config files.

    I gave up trying to get Roundcube running on the latest Server version. I was using the topic desk installer but whenever you try to login to we mail it just sits there.
