If you're willing to look away from Qmail, I used the following guide
as a basis when I moved my postfix mail server from Debian to FreeBSD.
Postfix supports Maildir, and that's how the guide sets it up.

I had some prior experience with postfix, having spent about 10-12
hours figuring it out from the official docs the first time I did it on
Debian... but the guide will have you a working setup in <4 hours even
without any prior experience. I think I had my FreeBSD mail server
working in under 2.

If you don't need all the stuff it lists, then only the
mysql+postfix+dovecot will give you a working server. Postfixadmin may
be needed aswell but I used a different SQL schema for my application
so I'm not sure.
