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.

If this will be a webmail only site then you'll probably want IMAP. You would use POP if you had clients (like thunderbird, outlook, whatever) connecting to the server to get their email. With pop you can have the clients store emial on their computer and not the server (you can, however, set pop up to leave a copy of the email on the server). You can use IMAP for that too. The email will just stay on the server. If you are going to use clients and webmail then you can do both. It boils down to where you want the mail to stay, unless you are a webmail only site, then you'll want to use IMAP.
Edit: Oh sorry. I thought that was asking if you should use POP or IMAP and not what program you should use for each.... So sorry. I guess just ignore that.

If your going with IMAP probably the wu-imapd is one of the most used ones and comes with most distros. Pop would be another choice by you. I would suggest a little research to make your decision really.
