Squirrel mail is a client. So, for it to be able to send mail, it has to
pass the message to a smtp server. For it to read mail, it has to have an
imap server that it connects to. Squirrellmail doesn't handle POP3 directly.
You have to configure your imap server to pull mail from a pop3. Check out
the squirrellmail faq about this at
