Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

OK this is not going to help out with your problem but I thought I might mention to you so you may have another option should getting the mail server turn out to be a headache. There is a great mail server distro called SME server, it is a full featured mail server that installs straight of the disc, very easy to follow the installation
It has a web-based interface for administration and has a host of features. The company Mitel had 2 versions, a free version and a commercial version. They drop the free version and Contribs.org picked up the free version and continue to bring out updated versions. The only thing with it is it runs on a dedicated machine, it cannot reside along side another operating system.
