ASP.net or PHP webmail app I can install on my shared hostin

I’m looking for either an ASP.net or PHP based webmail app I can install on my shared hosting.
I want to set this up on one of my domains for my Gmail address, due to Gmail being blocked at work.
I’d like the interface to be as similar to Gmail as possible, conversation view, labels, starred emails etc if possible well at least allow me to keep with my GTD workflow.
Any suggestions?

The closest one I know of is Roundcube, but I’d be glad to find anything closer! Roundcube is written in PHP. The only thing about Roundcube which reminds me of Gmail is the simplicity and AJax drag-and-drop.
From their website:

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

For .Net you might try http://mail.afterlogic.com. There is a list of mostly php applications at http://www.noupe.com/ajax/10-ajax-webmail-clients.html. Though nothing close to the interface you get with gmail.

If it’s just webmail interfaces (using AJAX) you’re looking for, then here are some candidates (RoundCube was already mentioned) :
http://roundcube.net/
http://atmail.org/
http://www.afterlogic.com/mailbee/webmail-lite.asp
http://www.horde.org/dimp/

I’d recommend AfterLogic’s WebMail Lite (although it’s not free, has versions in both PHP and ASP.NET). You can try out a live demo (ASP.NET version) here.

Consider using SSH to proxy HTTP. Or, you can try a proxy written in PHP… or simply use someone else’s proxy somewhere. Have you tried using Google’s Translate feature to access to Gmail (use Google as a proxy to Google)? Sometimes this is enough to break basic web filtering.
The advantage to a proxy is keeping the GMail interface completely intact.
