Have you looked at

You could use dovecot as a pop3 server, as it's very simple to configure

Thank you, but we are looking that site and we are not find exatctly answers :(

Pop3 must to setup manualy from terminal :(

Then try looking at

You don't really expect to find a howto that exactly meets you requirements or for anyone on this site to do your assignment for you do you?

that's great, but he's specifically asked about postfix, not which MTA to choose.

I wish the OP hadn't let on about the assignment as there are a few peoples who could learn from such a setup.
At any rate, here are some more sites which they will not want to check.
