Looking for a good Linux mail server package

I'm looking to set up my own mail server at my house.  Just 4-5 users.  Pretty light usage.  I want a package that is easy to set up and administer.  I am familiar with Linux.  I can work my way around the filesystem, etc. but am by no means an expert.  Here are the specs that I am looking for:

1.  Free (as in beer)
2.  IMAP support
3.  WebMail so that I can check my e-mail from any computer with internet access.  
4.  Ability to work with Spam-Assassin and some AV software if possible (this is a desireable, not a necessity)

I can put any version of linux on the box that's relatively easy to set up (i.e. most distros except for Slackware and Gentoo)
Thank you in advance for any assistance.

Is the QMail/IMAP/SquirrelMail/SpamAssassin combo relatively easy to set up?  I have no problem following explicit directions if they are provided by the package maintainers, but am not intimately familiar enough yet to understand basic directions that assume I know where all of the config files are, etc.

You can use webadmin to config them easier (GUI)
