Hmmmm....   Well....  Since you used "eg.", I guess you are open to use
different applications then listed.  CentOS comes standard with Cyrus-imapd
(it's on the install CD, and you can also install it using yum).  Default
configuraion uses system accounts to authenticate, but it is trivial to change
it to authenticate against LDAP (for example).  Exim comes standard 
with CentOS

So if you are willing to trade courier for cyrus, and mysql for openldap, than
you would have very easilly deployable server with components that are 
maintained by upstream provider (and will be for at least next 6 years).
