Since I agree with your choices <grin>

For web mail, I have been using SquirrelMail with success: 

What is SquirrelMail?
SquirrelMail is a standards-based webmail package written in PHP4. It
includes built-in pure PHP support for the IMAP and SMTP protocols, and
all pages render in pure HTML 4.0 (with no JavaScript required) for
maximum compatibility across browsers. It has very few requirements and
is very easy to configure and install. SquirrelMail has all the
functionality you would want from an email client, including strong MIME
support, address books, and folder manipulation.

It requires Apache, PHP,  and others like Perl, MySQL, Aspell optional
but helpful. It may seem like a lot but I already planned on compiling

I chose Postfix as the MTA.  I also chose maildir (over mbox)  and
Courier for IMAP: http://www.courier-mta.org/
I don't know whether GNU GPL is a problem-
