Another consideration you'll have to look into is the format in which delivered e-mail is stored on the system -- choices are typically mbox (the default style on FreeBSD), maildir or the Cyrus mailbox database. If you aren't going to use mbox format, you'll need to install a new MDA (mail delivery agent) and integrate that with your MTA (mail transport agent -- eg. sendmail). If you just want to get a webmail system up and running quickly, and you don't have any special needs for massive capacity or extreme security, then try installing the mail/imap-uw and mail/squirrelmail ports. That I think is pretty much the simplest configuration job.
