For instance you can use postfix (for incoming mail) and dovecot (for smtp). But you need to look it up on the internet. Search "how to configure postfix/dovecot". You can't expect anyone to actually give you a detailed tutorial to do this. Ask question when you're having more specific troubles.

I believe postfix is the default on RHEL6.x (used to be sendmail for earlier versions).
you can use the yum cmd http://linux.die.net/man/8/yum to install. See also http://www.linuxtopia.org/online_boo...email-mta.html
