Postfix (like Exim, like Sendmail) does SMTP.

Cyrus (like Courier) does POP/IMAP

Squirrelmail provides a Web interface for POP/IMAP.

So an incoming message would be received by Postfix and dropped into the
Cyrus datastore (maildir by default I believe).

Then you would come along with Entourage and connect to Cyrus to receive
your mail. When you reply to a message, that would go out via Postfix.
