Since Roundcube is syncing your mail with a database, I don't think 
you're going to get too much speed out of it reading that much mail. 
Ideas are: Jacking up php.ini to have a larger max resources (for 
example in my /usr/local/php5/lib/php.ini file I can up my memory_limit 
= whatever I choose), do the cache such as you recommended, use 
something like Zend optimizer 
to speed up your PHP, or do other tricks to get PHP rolling (found this 
http://phplens.com/lens/php-book/optimizing-debugging-php.php)... or 
cleaning out your inbox, and I recommend Getting Things Done by David 
Allen to help with that:)

In all seriousness, there are many variations I can think of, some maybe 
the fact that Roundcube is going to a MySQL database, so MySQL on your 
end could be slow, or PHP, or both. I don't think Squirrell uses MySQL 
does it?
