lfwmail is a light weight web mail program written in perl.
It will run with acceptable speed even on a Pentium 100Mhz Linux mailserver.
It has just basic features and no calendar or folders but it is fully
mime compatible and can handle attachments.
If you don't like browser cookies, this program is very suitable for you, because you don't have to enable cookies.
It is also very secure when you use https (encryption). HTML
mails are converted to ASCII text for security reasons but
you can still see the HTML mail if you want.
The code is clean and structured. Installation is straight forward
and you don't need a lot of non standard modules.
You can run it in mod_perl if you want. Remember to restart the
server when you do changes in the lfwmC.pm or any other file.
Response time will be very fast with mod_perl however for most people
normal cgi-bin will be good enough. lfwmail is already quite fast.
lfwmail is a light weight mail program. It does not keep track on what
you have read and what is new. You have to remember the dates of the
mails. There is however a small help to keep track on what you have seen
and what is new. It works for Mozilla (not netscape 4), Opera and MS IE
you have clicked on is changed. This is to keep track on what you have
read and what is new. This information does also survive between sessions since
