I too would recommend postfix. I use it since forever. As webmail I gave =
my users choice: squirrelmail and roundcube. Spam filtering is a mus =
(for us at lest), I set up maia with mysql backend for settings and =
quarantene. Alas, I was unable to make quarantene part work qith =
postgresql which would be my first choice. Maia allows per user spam =
preferences. It has its integrated part spamassassing, and works with =
virus scanners, and distributed spam databases. But installation, or =
rather configuration is a bit finiky. IMAP part is dovecot.

Good luck!
