I have tried a few, and come to the conclusion that your choice is
dependent on your usage.

Squirrelmail:
  Simple and easy to install.
  Painfully ugly.
  Slightly strange UI

Horde/IMP:
  Horribly painful to install/configure.
  Extremely powerful, with more available plugins/features/apps than you
would ever want.
  Confusing for "grandma"

Zimbra:
  Horribly feature-full by default to the point of insanity.
  Very confusing for "grandma"

Roundcube:
  Very easy to install.
  Beautiful and easy UI
  "grandma" could pick it up easily
  Has performance issues/bugs with large emails.


I suggest you try out Roundcube at least for yourself.
