sqwebmail is part of the courier source - I found it very easy to set up
when I ran it alongside the courier POP/IMAP servers.  Note that for
courier to be happy, you have to have exim deliver to ~/Maildir/
(Maildir format in $HOME).  Also, there is an obnoxious question at
install time (do you want to run this SUID? or somesuch) - should
actually note that if you don't want to, sqwebmail will not run on a
stock install.
