SMTP is short for Simple Mail Transfer Protocol

It is possible to set up the free Squirremail on an iPhone but you need get some information first as Incoming and Outgoing Mail Server 
Host Name (SMTP), and of course the user name and password from the Squirremail account you already created:

This is a general how to configure an email account on your iTouch/iPhone.

Choose Settings / Mail, Contacts, Calendars / Accounts and choose Add Account....
Choose the email account type you need. In the Mail section select Add Mail Account and enter account information. Then click Save.
On the next screen enter your account details. If you are on a (ss) Shared-Server or (dv) Dedicated-Virtual Server you can use mail.////server.com as your incoming and outgoing mail server. (dv) users may also use the IP Address as well. Incoming Mail Server 
Host Name: s////.server.com 
User Name: username@/////.com 

Password:
Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) 
Host Name: s////.server.com 
User Name:
username@server.com
Password:
Save the entered information. Your iPhone will then verify your account information. If successful you will be taken back to the Mail Settings screen. You will still need to configure your folders. Select your newly created account and enter the Advanced section.

Hm... thank you very much for your reply. You didnt answer my questions, so I will ask again.

What I wrote what is the smtp for squirrellmail, I didnt mean to spell out the word. What I meant was to ask for the actual smtp - is in what I need to fill in field where it says: smpth:. for hotmail, it if is: smtp.live.com. for gmil it is: smtp.gmail.com.
So I ask again, more clearly: what are the actual numbers and letter that I have to ill into the field wher it is asking for the smtp, when I am setting up squirrellmail?
It is the same type of question I am asking for my second question. What is the actual number I have to fill in in the field that is asking for a server port?
I have host name and passwords etc
I look forward to your reply.

Oh I get it, sorry about that but that is a question you need to ask to the administrator(s) of one specific SquirrelMail service you want to join. There is no one but manny SquirrelMail based services already running (usually free) and is not possible for me to give you specific setup names and numbers. The administrators of one specific internet service will tell you all the settings with the specific SquirrelMail setup they support on their system.

SquirrelMail is just one free software to run a webmail but is not a service running on its own.

There is the server side configuration if you want to start your own server with SquirrelMail (that is not your question). There is also the free client software you could use as your webmail with your computer and there are just the settings from a service already running for you to configure your email software on a specific device. Some colleges use this software on their servers and they set the parameters you need, smtp, server name, server port, etc. Some payed internet service providers also use this software as their webmail service but they are the ones you need to ask if you want to use their service.

I hope I provided you with some useful information :)
