I use mutt 1.4.2.3i, which works without problems. I have also used 
Thunderbird with it, as does my business partner, and spotted no issues
there either.

As Gerard said, dovecot can handle virtual users. There are several ways
to do this - probably the most scalable will be SQL and LDAP, although
you can use passwd-file as well. There's some good documentation on the
web site, particularly http://wiki.dovecot.org/Authentication.
