qmail with pop3d and friends seems to be pretty solid in my short experience 
with them. I've not got hundreds of users, but it's said to be up to the task 
of 200,000 messages per day or so. It configures pretty easily once you get 
your head out of sendmail mode ;-)

One thing to watch out for is that one of the .debs is flaky, doesn't set the 
execute bits on some things, so compilation bails with a fatal. I don't recall 
which it is, now, but the fix is easy: chmod u+x /tmp/<progname>

I'm running it with ucspi-tcp and rblsmtpd, and it hasn't given me any 
problems. There are patches and whatnot floating around to set it up for 
relay-after-POP-authentication, but I haven't tried those since we're a small 
shop and all outbound mail comes from the local net.
