I have cyrus-imapd packages available that should build on CentOS as 
well (originally build on RH8, now for FC*).

It's fine for all kind of mailservers (enterprise with many users as 
well as small business or just a few users)... I'm currently maintaining 
3 Cyrus mailservers (two with < 50 users as well as one with > 1500 
users and - of course - both run great!).
