I don't know what you want to config but a simple mail server whould be:

dovecot.conf
Code:
mail_location = maildir:~/Maildir
log_path = /var/log/dovecot.log
info_log_path = /var/log/dovecot-info.log
protocols = imap pop3 imaps
listen = [::]
ssl_disable = no
disable_plaintext_auth = no
login_user = dovecot
mail_log_prefix = "%Us(%u):%i:%h "
pop3_uidl_format = %v.%u
protocol imap {
}

protocol pop3 {
}
protocol lda {
postmaster_address = postmaster@sms.org
}
auth_verbose = yes
auth_debug = yes
auth default {
  mechanisms = plain
  userdb passwd {
  }
  passdb shadow {
  }
user = root
}
dict {
}
plugin {
}

ssl_cert_file = /etc/ssl/certs/dovecot.pem
ssl_key_file = /etc/ssl/private/dovecot.pem

main.cf (Postfix)
Code:
alias_database = hash:/etc/mail/aliases
alias_maps = hash:/etc/mail/aliases, nis:mail.aliases
broken_sasl_auth_clients = yes
command_directory = /usr/sbin/
config_directory = /etc/postfix
daemon_directory = /usr/libexec/postfix
debug_peer_level = 2
home_mailbox = Maildir/
local_recipient_maps = $alias_maps unix:passwd.byname $virtual_mailbox_maps
mail_owner = postfix
mail_spool_directory = /var/spool/mail
mailq_path = /usr/sbin/mailq
manpage_directory = /usr/man
milter_default_action = accept
mydestination = $mydomain, $myhostname, localhost.$mydomain,
mydomain = org
myhostname = sms.org
newaliases_path = /usr/sbin/newaliases
queue_directory = /var/spool/postfix
relay_domains = $mydomain, $virtual_mailbox_domains
sample_directory = /etc/postfix/sample
sendmail_path = /usr/sbin/sendmail
setgid_group = postdrop
smtp_use_tls = no
smtpd_milters = unix:/var/run/clamav-milter/milter.sock
smtpd_recipient_restrictions = permit_mynetworks, permit_sasl_authenticated, defer
smtpd_sasl_auth_enable = yes
smtpd_sasl_local_domain = $mydomain
smtpd_sasl_security_options = noanonymous
smtpd_use_tls = no
unknown_local_recipient_reject_code = 550
virtual_alias_maps = ldap:/etc/postfix/ldap-aliases.cf,ldap:/etc/postfix/ldap-maillists.cf


Mail users are UNIX users and instead of mailbox (/var/spool/mail/%u) they have Maildirs ( ~/Maildir).

You can add users via Webmin or by shell with the command adduser or useradd...

Make an alias of root to a user in order to get mails with squirrelmail at /etc/mail/aliases e.g.
root: someuser
and after type /usr/sbin/newaliases

You can upgrade squirrelmail to version 1.4.13 from here

You have to be more specific to give you examples, for instance, what type of mail accounts...

P.S. Please use one account, and tell me which one to delete.

Any reason why your users doesn't get the mails from your main office's server directly with their clients?

Use the above configs for dovecot and postfix...
Create 15 users with the command adduser
You can use fetchmail to get the messages from your pop3 server...
Go to webmin interface under servers/fetchmail and add your pop3 info for every user, e.g /home/someuser/.fetchmailrc should look something like
Code:
poll mail.accord-knits.mg
        proto pop3
        user "yourusername"
        pass "yourpassword"
        keep

Do that from webmin it's easier.
You can set a cron job in the same page...

All users can manage their mails from squirrelmail...
To rewrite the headers use canonical_maps on postfix in case you have a different hostname.

I think that is what you want...
