I think a key point here is making this 'pluggable'

ie like a contrib - it can be installed or removed and swapped without interfering with things?

If we use Roundcube (and seeing the potential tie in with Nextcloud it seems fairly logical) is it easy enough to use Sogo or a.n.other easily?

Snappy is interesting but seems a bit of a one man project? Seems to have various hooks to Nextcloud.

We thank the RainLoop Team for making a great PHP 5 product that was good in the past.
Up to date system requirements, snappy performance, simple installation and upgrade, no database required - all these make SnappyMail a good choice.

Our team uses Horde largely for shared calendaring purposes, via Thunderbird.  TB is our go-to email client, though I do use the Horde webmail to review admin emails.  When workstations have failed and users needed email access immediately, the webmail has been a good short-term backup solution.  All have been frustrated with the issues noted below, as well as some daylight savings time quirks where calendar events are mysteriously one hour in error.

Horde is good but not usable as groupware in production, current sme10 version has 2 issues.  1. Event reminders discarded if set to 0 minutes. 2. Event invitations organiser changes to recipient email address and resends invites to all attendees from new organiser email address.

Same here, the calendars are very useful. The webmail is mainly a fallback option, e.g. on a computer without a configured TB. Some users actually prefer the webmail over TB though.

The webmail also works very well on mobile devices.

Is nextcloud calendar would be a valid option?
