We use a combination of tools that center around Postfix. I have
found the directions here to be very useful, and am currently
running a pretty busy server with this configuration. It provides
webmail, anti-virus/spam, IMAP, POP, SMTP (authenticated), ssl, etc.
All email server admin (as far as users, aliases, etc) are done via
mysql, which fits me nicely. :)
This tutorial is really designed for the Debian/Ubuntu crowd though.
I know Hans likes Dovecot .
