If you use Maildirs, then I really recommend mail/sqwebmail.  It avoids
having to run a separate IMAP process as the webmail client can directly
manipulate Maildirs.  It also has several different options for
authentication via mail/courier-auth (a required dependency).  I currently
use PAM (security/PAM) and pam_smbpass (security/pam_smbpass) to
authenticate against an smbpasswd file from the Samba server running on
the same machine.
