Courier IMAP/POP, Cyrus or Dovecot (probably a bit bleeding edge if you're
an ISP, but definitely worth testing out for smaller orgs).

I have to say I don't find this important, but you can always use + aliasing
and procmail.

vim? :-) So, I automate most of this and use things like cfengine and make,
but if you need clicky-clicky tools then there are webmin plugins for most
of the above. Or, you could just use SuSE OpenExchange, which uses all of
the stuff mentioned above (Cyrus for IMAP/POP). Mailman already has web
based admin stuff, but you can also use the command line tools.
