The closest I could get is Postfix + MySQL and a home-written web
interface to feed MySQL, each user having his own passwd to the web
interface (you can probably do the same with LDAP) + tpop3d compiled
with MySQL support.

This way your have #1 and #4.

For #2, I'm planning to use procmail / spamassassin. Patches for
procmail+MySQL are available here : http://www.posixnet.org/index1.html.
*not tested*

For #3, which anti-virus are you using ? *If* it acts like a SMTP server
and *If* you can set a per-user-relayhost on postfix, then the MySQL
solution *should* be OK. 
Another solution could be to redirect foo@mydomain.com to 
foo@anti-virus.mydomain.com for users who want some virus scanning.

#5 is still an unexplored ground to me (I tend to hate auto-replies because
having a clean configuration seems to be nearly impossible to me)

And I'd add #6 : per-user quota support... Nothing really obvious to do that
so far.

Good hunt for solutions. I'd appreciate to hear about the solutions you've found.
