If this will be a webmail only site then you'll probably want IMAP. You would use POP if you had clients (like thunderbird, outlook, whatever) connecting to the server to get their email. With pop you can have the clients store emial on their computer and not the server (you can, however, set pop up to leave a copy of the email on the server). You can use IMAP for that too. The email will just stay on the server. If you are going to use clients and webmail then you can do both. It boils down to where you want the mail to stay, unless you are a webmail only site, then you'll want to use IMAP.
Edit: Oh sorry. I thought that was asking if you should use POP or IMAP and not what program you should use for each.... So sorry. I guess just ignore that.

If your going with IMAP probably the wu-imapd is one of the most used ones and comes with most distros. Pop would be another choice by you. I would suggest a little research to make your decision really.
