Since you're on the IMP mailing list, I think you're going to find people
recommending IMP (plus some mail software of your choice, like sendmail,
wu-imap, courier-imap, etc).  You don't actually give enough info to
make good decisions as to which imap/smtp/pop3 software would be best.

> -Sort my email in separate folders based on content
> -Web access
> -IMAP access

The CVS HEAD version of IMP will do all this, though the release versions 
don't hve the remote pop3 fetch.

"TAD (Technology Attachment Disorder) is an unshakable, impractical devotion
to a brand, platform, product line, or programming language. It's relatively
harmless among the rank and file, but when management is afflicted the damage
can be measured in dollars. It's also contagious -- someone with sufficient
political clout can infect an entire organization."
