It depends on what our customers looking for. In addition, all two(2) of this webmail provide the same basic email features.
Example: Compose Email, Forwarding, Junk Mail, Address Book, Trash, Folders, Marked as reading/Unread, and many more.


Horde is considered the most fully-featured email compared to Squirrelmail & Roundcube and it has similar functions to Outlook. Horde webmail comes with features such as a calendar, task list, notebook, address book, and more. The e-mail management system includes support for advanced filters, attachments, spell checking, and displays HTML e-mail well.


RoundCube offers a much more nice, user-friendly, and fairly intuitive interface for your emails. It offers features such as markings, calendars, folders, a full-featured address book with groups and LDAP connectors, find-as-you-type address book integration as well as MIME support.
