Disk space requirements for vpostmaster are pretty close to a standard
CentOS install (for the software itself).  The vpostmaster install
procedure will install postfix (though you should let the install script
install all of these packages, since it installs some things from the
vpostmaster repository), postgres, dovecot, clamav, spamassassin and a
few other small packages.

Then you need to include space for /var/spool/vpostmaster depending on
how much space you want imap mail accounts to keep on line, or if your
using pop, enough space to hold pop mail until the clients download it. 
In either case, much less than an exchange server.  It just depends
whether your users need to keep a GB or more of email online or whether
200-300mb is enough.  For pop clients I only give them 30-50mb, but they
pick up their mail every day.

I currently run it on CentOS 5, however there are at least a few people
who have reported sucess with CentOS 6 on the vpostmaster list.

There are not many people using vpostmaster on this list.  I suggest you
join the vpostmaster list.
