email server advice


ok I just installed postfix as my MTA and mandrake already has procmail installed as an MDA. Firewall has been opened and I can telnet to port 25.
But I have a few questions left.....

1) How do procmail and postfix communicate (i.e. Config entry)? I dont see any documentation how one knows to use the other.

2) Whats next? Set up a POP3 server? Any suggestions on which one?

I think everything is configured correctly, I just want to test it. I must admit though Im a bit intimidated with so many processes Im going to have a heck of a time troubleshooting when something does fail.

The GNUbie
