Last time I setup a virtual + webmail system I managed to run Squirrel
and Horde in parallel and let users pick their poison. Horde's latest
version, horde framework 3.x, has gotten extremely complicated and
annoying to setup. I suppose that's the price you pay for functionality,
but getting mere webmail to work was a chore. Horde however can do
address books in Mysql and may be your best bet if you've got the time
to beat it into submission.
You might look at Roundcube which is very pretty, but it's missing a
number of features still and the codebase is likely to be fairly
dynamic. In another six months it might be a contender.
There is also Hula, but it contains all the servers/services so you'd
have to scrap your existing install.
Both have Gentoo ebuild overlays. :-)
And lastly I recommend PostfixAdmin as a admin frontend to any
Postfix/Mysql setup. Allows users to change their pass, set vacations
and other things, allows you to assign domain admins so local admins can
add remove accounts with in their assigned domains, and give you the
global admin a nice interface to deal with it all.
