Connecting to an IMAP Sever Through a Web Client

From: Andrew B.

Hi All,

Hoping to get some ideas on how I can accomplish this...

I am looking for a web-based client that will allow me to connect to
my own IMAP server.

My setup looks like this:

I use a Gmail account, it automatically archives everything coming in
and forwards each message to an IMAP account sitting on my own server.
I use Mail on my Mac at home to check the IMAP account, my iPhone when
I'm on the road and, normally Outlook at work. This keeps my mail in
sync no matter where I check it from while keeping Gmail as an
archive.

I just started a new job and their firewall is blocking me from
accessing imap.1and1.com or smtp.gmail.com. Does anyone know of a
web-based client that will allow me to enter my own IMAP server
information for mail retrieval and my own smtp server information for
sending mail? A free client would be great, but I'm also willing to
pay for the right solution.

I don't want to change my entire workflow just because my new job has
a stricter firewall....

Thanks for any suggestions!

Andrew
