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.

Best regards
