Summary     : Round Cube Webmail is a browser-based multilingual IMAP client
Description :
RoundCube Webmail is a browser-based multilingual IMAP client
with an application-like user interface. It provides full
functionality you expect from an e-mail client, including MIME
support, address book, folder manipulation, message searching
and spell checking. RoundCube Webmail is written in PHP and
requires the MySQL database or the PostgreSQL database. The user
interface is fully skinnable using XHTML and CSS 2.

Update Information:

A cross-site scripting (XSS) flaws were round in the way Round Cube Webmail, a browser-based multilingual IMAP client, performed sanitization of 'data' and 'vbscript' URLs. A remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted URL that, when opened would lead to arbitrary JavaScript, VisualBasic script or HTML code execution in the context of Round Cube Webmail's user session.
