I've upgraded Squirrelmail with many new features and would like to suggest that you set your Squirrelmail settings as outlined below. Squirrelmail and Nutsmail is much better than our webmail solution and if you make the changes as suggested you'll have a very useful and familiar looking email interface. Nutsmail has the most installed options.
Log into your Squirrelmail or Nutsmail account and click on options. Have fun.

Set up the Message Filters to sort your email in Folders including new ones you've created.
Then set the NewMail option to play your favorite "You've got mail" message.
Once you've got this far you'll have a very nicely behaved and useful configuration that everybody will recognize as a better than Yahoo or Google mail system with WYSIWYG email editing and lots of graphical icons to help make sense of an otherwise very bland interface.
