I'm not entirely sure, but i think courier-imap can authenticate with
MD5, SHA1 or crypt()-passwords. At least the source of the authlib includes
the necessary code. Courier-imap can handle both imap and pop3 and i think
this handles your problem. UW-imap possibly also knows SHA1-stuff, but cannot
handle pop3. The checkpassword-plugin cannot handle it either, so i think
you need courier-imap.
Qmail-sql doesn't care about passwords. Just make sure your password-field
is big enough to contain the SHA1-password.
