I recently went through setting up a FreeBSD 5.4 mail server using
postfix for smtp w/sasl (and maildrop as the lda), courier for secure
pop/imap, squirrelmail for webmail and dspam for spam filtering.
It took a few attempts to make dspam work properly, but I'm very
pleased with the setup.
In regards to you questions, you will have to install an imap server
to use squirrelmail. I prefer courier-imap because it's pretty easy
to setup and the courier-authlib port lets me setup md5, ssl, etc.
The only catch with courier-imap is that it will not read mail from
mbox mailboxes (/var/spool/mail). You have to be using Maildir
mailboxes, which I'm not sure sendmail will do natively. I know you
can use Sendmail -> Procmail -> Maildir though.
Figure out which approach works best for you, and I can probably help
you with the implementation.
