Why not incorporate the functionality of Communigator -- those parts that apply to SIMS -- right into SIMS? Supply menus for POP, SMTP, Router, etc. I mean, the code is already done (for Communigator); it wouldn't be that hard to merge it right into SIMS. Then you'd have no separate application to worry about. Optionally, you could run another copy of SIMS anywhere else and use it just like you use Communigator now, to log into a running SIMS server.

Since my machines are co-located, I rarely use anything but the web interface. I use Communigator initially to set up SIMS, then rarely, ever again.
