I am looking for a locally hosted web based mail client that will work on Windows (Vista and up) as well as Linux. Right now, I use mutt (Cygwin mutt on Windows), but I was wondering if there was a simple web based client I could use. It does not need all of the fancy features of mutt, just the ability to send mail and allow me to browse my local mbox files.

I personally use Squirrel Mail, which is provided by my web hoster.

Alternatively, you could use Gmail to manage your own personal email.

Not what I am looking for. All of my mail across four different accounts is downloaded to my computer into mbox files. I need a locally hosted solution that runs in any web browser. –  Eric Pruitt Feb 7 '11 at 14:49
then install Apache and php and then Squirrel Mail. Or Alpha mail if you like Gmail layout –  jet Feb 7 '11 at 18:31

Have you tried Mail2web? I used to use it quite often.
