I've been running openwebmail for a few years, it does indeed only work
with mbox files, though there does exist a patch for maildir support.
Its pretty good performance wise, I have some users with large mailboxes
it handles fine. It supports collecting pop mail for users, and I've got
dovecot imap working to share out any folders created within openwebmail
(and, obviously, openwebmail sees any folders created via imap)
One issue may be its not as actively developed as other webmail clients
out there, but if its current feature set suits your needs, that may not
be a problem.
