one hint would be that you should consider using database authentication
for your mail users and not have them as system users....
OS of course should be FreeBSD. There is a nice howto for installing
postfix with mysql/courier-pop3d on

As for system requirements... it really depends on your users and how much
they use the service. but conservatively you could still do ok with about
60GB hard disk space, maybe a 1GHZ box with 512MB RAM.
