I'm looking for a free web application that allows me to manage all my different email accounts from a single place, but managing each email account independently, I mean, having an inbox, sentbox, etc. for each account... That's pretty much the same that I do with Thunderbird in my desktop...

I know you can use Gmail, for example, to connect other email accounts through IMAP or POP, but that way you have all the emails in a single list and you have to use tags to organize them and so on...

What I'm looking for is something like you can see in the picture below, but in a web-based application that I can access everywhere from any device...

enter image description here

Note: I'm not asking for a recommendation among different applications, but only about the existence of any application like this. Anyway, I'm not sure if this questions fits here, if it doesn't, please excuse me...

I didn't feel the merit to submit this as an answer, because it's not free, but I was thinking of buying a virtualized desktop and using join.me to access Thunderbird AS my webmail when remote. – dmanexe Aug 19 '13 at 20:00
@dmanexe, interesting option... it's obviously not exactly what I'm looking for, but I'm open to suggestions like that as well... – MikO Aug 19 '13 at 20:53
You may want to check out mail2web.com ... I haven't used it since 2009, but it does something similar, and offers SSL... – dmanexe Aug 19 '13 at 22:19
There a a few interesting web based open source mail clients noupe.com/ajax/10-ajax-webmail-clients.html – NeDark May 12 '14 at 0:45

So, you are effectively looking for a web-based version of Thunderbird. Well, it seems that someone has started an open-source Google Code project named webtdb with this exact purpose, but it does not seem to have progressed very far yet.

If you are willing to consider non-free closed-source solutions, then Outlook Web App (part of Microsoft Office 365) might be what you are looking for.

+1 Interesting, although it's not what I'm looking for... – MikO Aug 19 '13 at 20:55

You may find what you are looking for at Outlook.com. Here is a view of the Email Options/Settings panel:

  • Click the "email accounts" link

  • Outlook.com Setting options
