Hi, welcome to LQ!

For a 'mailserver' you don't need apache, mysql or PHP.

sendmail (also comes with Slack by default) will do just fine.


Cheers,
Tink

Because they're not directly related to "mail". If you need/want to
have something with a web-interface that's a different story, but
you didn't specify that.

You don't need to - it comes with Slackware
