Hey there!

Yes, you need php first...
The documentation about php can be found on http://www.php.net, but i would recommend this package to you:
http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp-windows.html (for testing purposes, when you try it i recommend installing php fo windows).

After you download Squirrel mail and extract it, there is a install file in your package, covering everything but IMAP installation for you server (but there is enough info on the web about that -> just follow the steps).

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Hm... I didn't try it... Was just a hint...

If it doesn't work, than you will have to install in manually.

Yes.

On http://si2.php.net/downloads.php is says:

All Windows binaries can be used on Windows 98/Me and on Windows NT/2000/XP/2003.

At the bottom there is Windows Binaries part and link...

I think you need PHP 4 for Squirrel mail
