2 very popular Linux mail servers are postfix and exim.
Postfix is somewhat easier to configure.

yes, it does provide you pop/imap/webmail kind of facility..

for setting up cpanel you need to install it and just need to create your domain account within. It will auto configure everything.. all you need to pay a little license cost.

Also i suggest you to explore Zimbra as it has all the functions and Opensource edition which is free

I second the suggestion for Zimbra.  There is a paid version that also allows you to get support in case you need to have that.  There is a Zimbra connector for Outlook.  On the iPhone, you can connect to Zimbra by selecting exchange and all the calendering will work.
