Nope.  The email starts out on a server I control.  I'm using POP3 to
get it off of that server onto Gmail, so that have #1-4.  If I could
host something that offered all that stuff I'd be more than happy to
do so.  I've yet to see a FOSS tag-based mail storage system, let
alone a web-based client with keyboard shortcuts, etc.

With Gmail I can look at my inbox, and do nothing more than hit
pgdown, followed by #, e, !, or j/k for 99% of my mail.  # and e are
buttons at the top of the screen on the android client.

With solutions like squirrelmail/roundcube I end up having to pick a
folder after reading each email to sort my mail, instead of
pre-sorting it or just using search to find things later.  They lack
the whole inbox vs archive concept found in Gmail, which works
differently that traditional folder-based storage systems.
