It's not an option -- SquirrelMail has never done that for you.

That's a morass that I don't think we'll wade into.  There's plenty of
different database engines out there and lots of ways to create tables. 
If you need just the basics, there is in fact a CREATE TABLE example at
the top of functions/db_prefs.php in the source code.

Connecting is not the same as accessing tables.
