You have to use a third-party application. I highly recommend Dovecot,
which you can install via the mail/dovecot port. It supports IMAP/IMAPS
and POP3/POP3S; many mailbox formats; and many user database back-ends
(/etc/passwd; LDAP; PostgreSQL; MySQL; etc.). It is highly
configurable. Be sure to look at the port Makefile for build options.
