	You're in luck, as most Webmail suites nowadays use IMAP as
the means of connecting to your MTA.  Thus, if qmail has an IMAP
server that will talk to the outside world in the way the world
expects, you should be able to set up IMP or Squirrelmail or any other
of the myriad Web mail suites out there.

	You don't even need to make the IMAP server visible to the
outside world--only the machine running squirrelmail (et al) needs to
be able to connect via IMAP.  Often you'll be using the same machine
for both, so a localhost-only IMAP server is your best bet.  

A: No.
