Guide Review - mail2web - Web Access to POP and IMAP Email Service
mail2web supports both POP and IMAP accounts, and a number of features make it a safe experience: mail2web doesn't store your access information, supports secure TLS/SSL connections and even prefers plain text messages to their HTML counterparts (which it supports, of course).
If you register, you get easier access to multiple accounts, and can keep a simple address book in mail2web.
Unfortunately, mail2web doesn't offer any filtering, and you can't create folders in IMAP accounts. The anti-spam measure of preventing From: address customization can be a problem, too.
