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.

That roundcube looks pretty nice !, I like the interface. Had I seen that before I would have tried it on my mail server.
Interesting. I would try it.
Squirrelmail is quite popular, and used on a lot of server. basic html interface. easy to configure
I heard it for long time but w/o testing it.
4. I would install everything on one server with no virtualization. When you start spam filtering and virus scanning messages, it can get pretty CPU intensive.
Also for a Server if you are going to use Ubuntu I would suggest the LTS (Long Term Support) Server version rather than just the regular 6 month cycle version.
Advice noted and thanks.
I build this server for testing, not for production, to learn setup a virtual machine. I chose Ubunbu because easy to configure saving my time so that I can devote the same to other use. Because I always discover my time is insufficient on building LAMP server, lot of problems.
Previously I came across a project developing a package to setup Apache. I can't recall its name, seemingly starting "X??PP. Googling can't find it. Any idea?
I'm currently waiting for Zimbra to finish Version 5 so I can replace my current Debian Mail server with Zimbra on Debian.
Zimbra on Ubuntu LTS Server took me about a half hour to configure Mail, webmail, AV, and spam filtering.. was amazing simple.. just prep the system per the directions
1.install proper dependancies, and remove certain default packages
2.install a couple packages from Zimbra..
3.Configure through web interface..
Zimbra and Scalix both have free community versions. so you don't need to pay for anything. The Commercial version gets you Support, Outlook integration (so you can use the calendaring etc in outlook) and Mobile device support for TREO's or Blackberries
ZCS Open Source Edition is available for you to test, evaluate, deploy, customize, and improve. It is free in perpetuity (providing you comply with the associated licensing terms). It does not, however, include Zimbra Support or software subscription.
The only project I'm aware of for setting up and configuring apache is the apache toolbox. http://www.apachetoolbox.com/ it downloads apache and relatd applications (PHP, MySQL, etc.. etc.. ) and compiles them from source.
