Postfix should satisfy your requirements.

1) security conscious

IMHO Postfix is very secure

2) virtual email accounts, likely using LDAP

In latests versions of Postfix you can use transport named 'virtual'
which allows to create easily virtual mailboxes. And Postfix can
lookup users in LDAP database.

3) spam control

never used it but I've seen in Postfix docs mention about it. If you
have installed postfix check /usr/share/doc/postfix/html/uce.html

4) ease of configuration

IMHO Postfix satisfies this requirement also.
