IMAP probably. I have used dovecot and cyrus in the past, I personally
have no affinity to either :) But I do recall one of them working
better with Squirrelmail in the past, might have been courier

before I ran Debian and Ubuntu.

I never send GPG encrypted/signed mail unless I really have to, and
even then I use mutt :)
