mail server setup


Hey
I wanted to see if some one can shed some light in my problem =\
am using right now CentOS 4.3 Gnome GUI on a PIII 733MHz with 512MB RAM that is running here in my house. Am using Apache to host a backup web site and i wanted to set it up as a mail server as well. I have a a domain name at godaddy.com that gives me the option to forward emails. I wanted to know if any one would know a good mail server to use and some tutorials. I had plan to use POP3 with MS Outlook but anything would help right about now. Please and thank you in advance

well centos uses postfix by default, so that's probably half configured already. in order to complete it, just look through /etc/postfix/main.cf and reach each comment on each relevant option. there should be very little you need to do... define your domain name, and what your locsl networks are.

ahh well install it then, i guess i was wrong about it being default, but it's definitely on the cd's.
