A friend of mine has the following setup:

 fetchmail to get email in from his ISP 
 mail is delivered locally by postfix
 courier serves the mail via IMAP
 SquirrelMail using the IMAP server

I am sure you can find help on here for all the individual parts. Sorry

Software is not manufactured, it is something you write and publish.
Keep Europe free from software patents, we do not want censorship
by patent law on written works.

Most people, I think, don't even know what a Rootkit is, so why should
they care about it?
