Greetings from 2007. Things today appear to be very different from your account of how things were in 2004.
This is one of the best opensource packages I've had the pleasure of working with, and working with it has been a pleasure.
Everything you need to run an email system is integrated into one project, no need to mix and match, and the quality of the standard adhesion is second to none as is the quality of the code.
Bugs, which are few and far between are patched within hours.
Take a look at the project homepage and look at the extensive documentation and man pages. There is simply nothing about this project that is not documented. There is a lot of reading to be done, but you will find everything you need in the documentation.
The setup is flexible enough to accomodate any situation.
I've recently migrated from a cyrus setup, and am very very happy with this new setup. My logs are a lot cleaner and its possible to trace things on the system.
If you're running your own mailserver, take the time to get up to speed on this one, it'll make life so much easier for you.
