should be without any problem.. 3500 accounts is not a lot of mail,
really, and is really not considered a "high traffic" email server. When
you get over 20-30 emails/sec.. 1200-1800 / minute ... or over 100,000
emails an hour, that is getting to be a high traffic server <g>
postfix/mysql no problem handling what you need. I am not familiar with
TeaPOP, and in looking at their site, they have been out for a few years,
and I have not come across any prior security history problems with them,
that I have heard, unlike Qpopper, which has a very real history of
security issues.. 

I would say, give it a go... on high volume servers, the focal area of
concern is disk I/O, as this will be your slowest area.
