[oops and this time to the list...]
Personally I prefer Postfix and Courier-IMAP as I prefer Maildir
format but as you can see already it's quite a minefield. If you have
time I would set up a test box and try those that interest you. There
is some good info in the wiki (Address in the footers of all messages
from the list) and there is also some good info here http://
www.gentoo.org/doc/en/virt-mail-howto.xml which although written for
Gentoo can quite easily be adapted for your distro. It will certainly
give you the general idea.
