I evaluated most of them a few years ago when I was unhappy with squirrelmail.
My impression of imp was that it might be good for a university but a royal
pain for a hobbyist.  It could be easier now, that was several years ago.

I only use webmail casually too, I use mutt if I have a ssh client available.
It would be interesting to hear opinions from anyone who uses any of them
heavily.  I think if you use webmail as more than a backup the correct answer
is "gmail".
