Hey Dave, I'm not sure if anyone answered your question. Squirrelmail is /Maildir based, and it would be a good idea to install an IMAP program as well. My setup is Postfix, Procmail (for Spamassassian), Spamassassian, Courier-IMAP, and squirrelmail.
Most of the install went ok, but it had it's struggles. I used a book (Absolute BSD) to install Postfix. (I'll add some links at the bottom that I found helpful). The book left a few things out, but they weren't that difficult to fix (it was an otherwise awesome book). Make sure you change the cf file in postfix to use /Maildir if you are going to use squirrelmail. If you're not going to use Spamassassian, you probably don't need procmail. (I'm not 100% sure). But here's the problem I had. I compliled Courier-IMAP to use SSL which in turn became a nightmare for Squirrelmail. I spent many, many hours trying to get Squirrelmail going to no avail. A few days ago (After leaving it alone for almost 2 mos) I revisited Squirrelmail. What I finally discovered is that it hates TLS. I even got to the point where I had IMAP-SSL running on port 993 and IMAP running on port 143 (which I block outside the firewall), but I just couldn't get IMAP (non-SSL) working with ANY mail client. Finally in the IMAP-SSL configuration file I changed IMAP_TLS_REQUIRED=1 to IMAP_TLS_REQUIRED=0. A very frustrating and baffling problem was finally fixed and now Squirrelmail works. ##NAME: IMAP_TLS_REQUIRED:1 # # Set IMAP_TLS_REQUIRED to 1 if you REQUIRE STARTTLS for everyone. # (this option advertises the LOGINDISABLED IMAP capability, until STARTTLS # is issued). IMAP_TLS_REQUIRED=0 Helpful links: This one is what I used to finally get courier-imap (with SSL going). http://ezine.daemonnews.org/200308/courier-imap.html I don't know how much this will help on postfix, but I used it a little bit. http://www.postfix.org/faq.html Good Luck. Like you, I found the documentation sparse. Much of what I did was trial and error, so my own documentation is from memory. Let me know how it turns out!

So far i've been unsuccessful in finding anything that doesn't involve a database, i want to use ssl encryption and authenticate via the system password file. Does anyone know a site for this? Thanks.
