The previous version was based on CentOS 5 code.  I believe that for
the current version they did their own RHEL rebuild due to the delays
in the Centos release - and ended up taking even longer.

I haven't looked that recently - the older versions used postfix with
cyrus or dovecot - and you could do a certain amount of fiddling with
the underlying configs yourself.
