[CentOS] Recommendations for webmail client on EL8

Hi Simon, we used to use Squirrelmail also, but have since migrated to 
RoundCube. It's easy enough to install on a CentOS 7 server (we don't 
use EL8) by downloading directly from the Roundcube website and 
following the installation instructions. The interface is clean, modern, 
and the project gets frequent updates. Updates have been mostly 
painless, but they can overwrite some of the customizations one might 
have made so that is a pain (mostly any CSS customizations or changes to 
the default .htaccess file which relates to PHP upload size).

I don't recall needing any hard to find RPMs - we generally don't stray 
further than what is available via the CentOS repositories or EPEL.
