I would second the Dovecot suggestion as it's extremely simple. My config using SSL is 41 lines, excising the default config's (from which I built mine) copious commentary and blank lines.

I'm a cyrus-imap fan. It's very reliable and simple to configure. Dovecot and Cyrus-Imap are really the 2 big (if not only) options nowadays.
