I went through this same decision process a while ago and ended up with
the following choices:
Exim base mail app. - I wavered on Qmail, but really didn't like it
much, partly due to the license obstructing binary distribution and
partly due to the configuration - the way it uses multiple hidden files
for managing aliases is a pain and just plain daft imho.
Courier for IMAP - I looked briefly at UW, but this didn't seem to solid
on the security side from what I read; I also looked at Cygnus and
installed it briefly, but I really didn't like the way it uses its own
system for storing mail as I like to be able to work with the mail
locally on the server using Mutt if I need to - too proprietry for me,
if that's the right word!
Procmail and Fetchmail fit in with this nicely if needed. Procmail I
use, and there are a couple of accounts I use Fetchmail to pull mail in
Webmail I've not sorted yet. I did take a look at Squirrel mail a while
back, but haven't done a full evaluation yet.
Anyway, summary - Courier IMAP would be my recommendation.
