Postfix works fine. Sendmail or qmail would do the trick as well. Depends

You should check if both your MTA, IMAP/POP3, and delivery agent (procmail

Don't use IMP for a large userbase. IMP is slow and bloated. The interface
is really slick, but it's a real CPU/MEM hog.

I'd go for squirrelmail if I were you.
