I've been using this for about a year now.
firefox can handle mailboxes in excess of 10,000 emails.
squirrelmail can't handle 3,000.
I've written some perl scripts that manage IMAP connections on this
server up to the same 10,000 with no problem.
squirrelmail has worked for years. But lately it's been inconsistent.
