I guess you could start to look in the area of:
- /usr/ports/mail/fetchmail (to fetch/store the mail)
- /usr/ports/mail/dovecot (for access to the mail via imap)
- /usr/ports/mail/squirremail or roundcube (webmail w/ imap)
- /usr/ports/www/apache22 for the webmail
As you're then using IMAP, any client that connects to dovecot will get
the same set of mailfolders (sync).
