The most well-known is Horde (e.g. webmail.lmi.net).  Did you check freshmeat.net?  I remember seeing something simple in Perl there.

One cheap solution I used for a client recently that wanted webmail access when his ISP didn't provide it was to use Yahoo.  Yahoo allows POP3 connectivity, so you can pull your mail into a Yahoo mailbox through a web interface.  You can also configure the Reply-To: header, so responses sent from the Yahoo address go back to the original POP email box.  Is completely free (as in beer) and requires little time to setup.

Subject: [buug] Webmail App?

Can anyone recommend a decent webmail app?  Needs to support POP3. I've
found some very basic ones, but I'm looking for something with a few more
features.  At a minimum, it needs an addressbook; folders would be nice
too.  Language is unimportant; server supports Perl, Python, PHP4, etc.  
Server has MySQL access.

Sites being hosted through a webhosting company, so I don't have root
access to the server.

Only other restriction is that the app must be free/open source software.
