Horde+Imp, SquirrelMail, and OpenWebMail all spring immediately to mind, and 
all should be in ports. I use Horde on my mail server and think it's great; 
very flexible and powerful. It is a bit cumbersome to get running and to 
upgrade, but that aspect continues to improve. The other two are a bit more 
basic but each has a wide following.
