Everyone has mentioned dovecot -- maybe I should check it out -- but I have been using courier-imap
for 5 or 6 years and like that POP/IMAP package. All clients connect fine, it does SSL
(POPs/IMAPs) and never gives me any trouble. The multiple rc.d files are kinda silly. I've been
using it on a mail machine to serve 200 domains and about 2,500 email addresses -- never seems to
crash, never requires restarts.
Oh, and I use sendmail as the MTA (with clamav/milter-regex/sid-milter/milter-greylist).
