I also recommend dovecot. I'm using it for several years
without a problem, and it was quite simple to setup.
I'm using it with sendmail, though (not postfix), because
I've been using sendmail for almost 20 years and haven't
had a reason to switch. If you're already familiar with
sendmail on Solaris, then I recommend you continue using
sendmail on FreeBSD (it's the default MTA that comes with
the base system).
Having said that, Postfix _is_ a very good MTA, I'm using
it at work. If you're willing to switch and invest a
little bit of time learning something new, then Postfix
is certainly a good choice. It's quite easy to install
Postfix from the ports collection.
