Did you bother to try to look?? Since you're using RHEL6, you have access to their ARE paying for RHEL, aren't you? Even if not, a quick Google search turns up an article from RedHat:

...and if you want to install it, how about just going to Squirrelmail's website, and downloading it?

Postfix - is part of InstallMedia repo so you can install it from RHEL 6 DVD/ISO.

Remember that Sendmail is the default MTA(Mail Transfer Agent) for RHEL and if you want to user postfix and you need to change the default MTA (let me know if you cannot find any information on how to change MTA)

Squirrelmail - you have to download it from its website.

You will also need IMAP/POP server so you can use it with squirrelmail and Apache server to host squirrelmail.

Dovecot is the default and free IMAP/POP server which comes with RHEL and it is also part of Installmedia repo.

You can use this additional link for reference.

Install Postfix
Download squillermail at /var/www/html from here
wget -c
Small trick :
Configure squirrelmail:
# cd /var/www/html/squirrelmail
# ./configure
Modify Organization Preferences and Server Settings.
After changes server settings will be:
SquirrelMail Configuration : Read: config.php (1.4.0)
Server Settings
1. Domain :
2. Invert Time : false
3. Sendmail or SMTP : SMTP
A. Update IMAP Settings : (other)
B. Update SMTP Settings : localhost:25

Modify timezone settings :
# vim /etc/php.ini
date.timezone = "Your timezone"

Restart Apache(Confirm you have apache)
# /etc/init.d/httpd restart

Access Squirrelmail:
http://localhost/squirrelmail or http://ur-ip/squirrelmail
