Postfix is a good choice, but it seems that sendmail is faster (there is
more security holes, but .. it run faster)
> Which pop3 / IMAP server ( thinking for cyrusd )
cyrusd, yes .. but the most important thing is to have a good server
(write cache, optimisez fs like ext3 with noatime)
You can use cyrus-murder to "clusterise" cyrus.
> What is the best approach for antivirus and antispam.
Antivirus: you can use clamav ..
for the antispam, amavis use spamassassin by default (works well :)

Horde is hard to configure,
squirrelmail is hugly
We test "round cube" webmail: all is in ajax, maybe a good solution ?
> Service monitoring NMS ( OPENNMS , negois ??)
nagios do the work well :)

The most important thing: Write cache and Ram !
