Is this a general observation? We used to offer SquirrelMail with our
product, and we recently moved to RoundCube because we thought the
heavier use of Ajax would make the user experience more responsive. One
by one, all our more demanding clients have begun to ask for SqMail back.
They say (i) SqMail used to work on the browser of mobile phones but RC
doesn't, and (ii) RC is too slow, SqMail was just fine. This second point
has caught us by surprise and we are in the process of setting up SqMail
again for these customers. Personally we find the SqMail interface quite

We were toying with the idea of actually buying and supplying the Tuxedo
