I use postfix and dovecot, and dovecot is in imap4 mode.  This makes it 
possible for me to use seamonkey (or really, any browser that has a mail 
interface) to pick up my mail from any location.  Does good enough 
filtering, although I am investigating adding some extra filtering via 
postfix.  Setting up dovecot/postfix is easier than most mailers (it's a 
PITA, but the others are basically worse) and there are a lot of 
examples on the web for setting the combination of postfix/dovecot up.

For security, I use ssl (openssl) and ssl has a really nice tool, 
"openssl", that has among its different modes, sclient and sserver, 
which allow pretty good testing of your ssl setup, and you can find on 
the web instructions for setting up your keys (lts of examples all over).
