qmail with squirrelmail: is it possible?

I have perfectly installed qmail as SMTP/POP3 server.
I have also installed an apache web server with Php support.
All works very fine.
Now I want to install a webmail.
I decided to use Squirrelmail since it seems pretty good. Squirrelmail's website says that it works with any IMAP4rev1 server.

Must I Install an Imap server too? (such as Courier Imap)
Or is there any trick (or patch or anything else) to let qmail work as an IMAP4rev1 server?

If someone has done something similar, please let me know (keep in mind that I'm almost newbie ).

Thanks in advance.

If you're going to go through all the trouble of installing qmail you may as well use the Maildir functionality of Courier.

You can still use UW-IMAP (the defalt IMAP for most distros) and have qmail use the traditional mbox format.
