  Once again it is unclear what you are asking... but you did include
more detail about what you did.

  Based on what I understand from the description of squirrelmail,
it appears to be a web mail front end, which can access IMAP or local
mail spools, and send mail via IMAP or SMTP.

  It appears to need to run inside a web server... as it's php.

  It sounds like either imap or squirrelmail are setup incorrectly.

  I would recommend using a normal imap client to check that the imapd is
working correctly (checking things in /var/log/messages and such) to
make sure that's fine.  If that doesn't work, fix it first.

  Once that works then try squirrelmail, checking things in 
/var/log/apache/ error.log or access.log (or where ever your apache logs
go) to see what sort of errors the php code is spewing out.
