You have asked about SquirrelMail, but I think the problem may be elsewhere. You didn't mention where your mail server (MTA) is running...you will need an MTA for SquirrelMail to connect to, and you will also need (for instance) an IMAP server and an authorisation server.
For example, in my mailserver, I use EXIM4 as the MTA, with Courier-IMAP and other Courier modules for authorisation, etc. Do you have this kind of setup? Or are they running on a different machine in your network....SquirrelMail doesn't run on its own, it is a Mail User Agent (MUA) and needs to interact...
Hope this Helps
Google Is Your Friend
I got your email, but I don't post answers privately, and nor should you ask for them. This is a site to help everyone, and if I'm going to help, I will try to get the information to as many as possible, not keep it between folk. If everybody relied on private email, this forum, with all its benefits, would die, and I'm not prepared to see that.
If you tried google, or better, searched this site, you would find that there are many posts/sites with howtos for what you need, try using them! I had to sort this out for myself using google and books (and trial and error!), and now I know how mail and other stuff works. If I just give you a whole bunch of configuation details, you may make it work, but you won't know *how* or *why*, so I'm actually hindering you, not helping. I don't want to seem anti, but if you have really beaten your head against the problem and still got a problem, then we can work together, but simply emailing
"kindly tell me your client & server configuration/setting. waiting for your reply"
does not tell me you have *tried* to google you way out of this...
My favourite site for mail setup templates is http://koivi.com/exim4-config/
