A good combination could be:

Dovecot (imap pop server)
Postfix (MTA smtp with mysql support)
Mysql (database server to store user accounts aliases enz)
Postfixadmin (webgui to manage users, domains, aliases in the mysql database. Also provides out of office) (I would use the svn version.)
Lighttpd (webserver for webmail)
Squirrelmail (webgui for webmail), or use imp from the horde framework.

Works like a charm for me.
