The main overview, features and advantages found in each of these three Webmail email client applications are.
I use Horde because of its advanced features as well as look and feel. However Horde needs some getting used to, like for example, when you delete a email in Horde, it still stays in the Inbox with a cross line over the email indicating its deleted. (To delete it permanently, you have to select a drop-down and then select, “Purge Deleted”) But in SquirrelMail when you delete it goes to the deleted/junk folder like in Gmail or Yahoo mail.
In conclusion, your choice of webmail client depends a lot on what you are looking for. If you want the best look and feel together with advanced features like you find in Gmail and Yahoo then go for Horde. RoundCube is good for its user-friendly appearance plus some functions. If you prefer simplicity then go for SquirrelMail.
