Yes, but IMO they *all* suffer from the same basic problem: VERY messy.
SquirrelMail. PHPbb. PHPGroupware. Flyspray. I can hack the code but lord
does it seem to get messy in a hurry. PHP can separate content from
presentation but it seems to encourage mixing it... Much like the tobacco
companies "encourage" you to stop smoking with the digusting pictures and
warnings but they're still selling it...
