apt-get remove --purge squirrelmail
apt-get install squirrelmail

If squirrelmail was removed but not purged and you manually removed its conf
directory(/etc/squirrelmail) and then reinstall it, dpkg will assume that
you meant to remove it and won't put conf files in there till after its
purged and installed.  Purging removes that 'choice' from dpkg's database.
You can also use --force-confnew but I forget the actual semantics and purge
and install is easier.
