I know that Mexicana was the largest 727 operator out of the US with 44 planes.

id say UPS myself (how many 727-100QFs did they convert again?)... or maybe FedEx...

And the problem with DHL is its not one airline, its got several airlines operating in its colors, many who fly 727s... i dont think DHL proper has many 727s anymore?

Passenger... well the biggest passenger owner is probably Pan Am, since they own several ex UA birds along with those they operate. There might be a bigger operator out there somewhere though...
