additionally to former posts, maybe have a look at /usr/ports/mail/dbmail
I am not sure about your detailed needs, but maybe this will help.

You can use it for storing (postfix as frontend) and retrieving
(dbmail includes pop3/imap daemon) mails in a database. Most of the
config, e.g. users, passwords can live in the database.

With sieve filters (stored in the database too) you can filter mails
(vacation, folder filter, redirect, delete, ...).

The avelsieve plugin of squirrelmail can give u a nice frontend for
changinge the rules per user.

For more infos about dbmail have a look at
