The way the that Squirrelmail works is that it does not read directly
the user mail. Instead it uses IMAP to do that. This is the case no
matter if the mail server is local or remote. We use it here supporting
1300 users no problem. The benefits of this is you may install
Squirrelmail on another server to keep the load down. Although we have
had no problem with our load.
