AeroMail 2 is the next generation of Mark Cushman's AeroMail.

AeroMail is a web-based e-mail client written in PHP. AeroMail uses an IMAP server to read and store messages in one or more user-defined folders. Features include HTTP authentication for login (no cookies) and folder manipulation.

AeroMail 2 adds something to the original. You can now embed AeroMail in a webpage of your own design, and customize its appearance more easily.

Furthermore, displaying of messages was improved to include foreign languages like Russian and Chinese, and to display HTML messages including pictures. Last but not least, spam flagging using DNS blacklists is now possible.

Who can use Aeromail?

Are you an ISP who want a webmail service that is easily configurable? AeroMail allows you full control over operation and appearance.
Are you a webhosting company who need webmail for their clients? AeroMail comes with genericstable support, spam marking and many configurable options.
Are you a mail user who is sick of spam? You can use AeroMail to mark and delete your spam without downloading it to your own computer first.
Do you just want a fast and easy way to check mail when you're on the move? AeroMail is small, easy to set up and does not depend on MySQL, LDAP or other things you do not have: you only need an Apache webserver, PHP and an IMAP mailserver.

Why use AeroMail?

AeroMail is small, fast and simple to use. It is known for its clear and elegant interface.
AeroMail has support for other characters sets. It displays e-mail in Russian, Chinese, Japanese and many other languages.
AeroMail is available in many languages: currently you can choose from Bulgarian, Catalan, Chinese, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Estonian, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Latvian, Lithuanian, Norse, Polish, Portuguese (Brasil), Portuguese (Portugal), Romanian, Russian, Serbian (Roman or Cyrillic), Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish, Turkish, Thai and Ukranian.
Optionally you can use AeroMail to flag spam, so you can easily delete it before downloading it to your own computer.
AeroMail is very easy to set up: just copy the files, answer some questions and you're ready to go!
