I'd really like to see the FOSS options improve in this area.  Neither
Squirrelmail or RoundCube are half as nice as Gmail.  IMAP at least is
a decent standard, although mobile client implementations tend to be

There really aren't any good options if your requirements include:
1.  Operating primarily in a web-based environment.
2.  Decent Offline email on Android.

Roundcube looks nice, but unlike Gmail it lacks keyboard shortcuts for
most of the common tasks (such as moving mail out of the inbox), and
drag-and-drop on a laptop with a trackpad is pretty annoying.

So, right now I end up having a procmail recipe forward my gmail
account a copy of all my mail, and I have fetchmail grab a copy of all
my sent mail.  My inbox in IMAP must have 10k messages in it by now...
