Any of the choices you have listed will work fine,for your requirements.
We have used Squirrelmail for the last 5 years after dumping M$ Exchange
(Thank you Lord), And SM has never dropped or given any fits. In a
school enviornment its so difficult to change, I/We have just stuck with
SM,as the  no one likes to see a different look. ( this is commonly
referred to as "set in your ways",,,synonymous with a school setting,:)
If you are starting from scratch I think I would go with what Les
Mikesell suggested in the SME server setup. Its hard to beat the "all in
one " install of something like this for convence and getting up and
running without having to add this to make that work,,,blah,,blah,,,.

I'm sure that's a good thought trying to get smartphone support as they
are really coming into play lately. If you don't consider this, sure
enough someone will gripe " Why cant we use our new fangled $500 phone
to look at email"! In our neck of the woods,you don't want to ever step
out of your comfort zone,so I think the smartphone thing is a few
decades off yet! People are in bed at 6pm each night and sidewalks are
rolled up at the same time.Otherwise known as Podunk USA:).
Let us know what you decide on.

Take Care,
