Which Firewall, Proxy, DHCP, DNS and Email server package would you recommend?


For a small to medium networked environment of less than 100 Windows and Linux PCs.

Thanks

my post : -- personal opinion and what i heard, so its not a public or general opinion

people said that sendmail was build in a safe world.... and its not a stong and reliable web server. however sendmail isntallation is easy.

qmail is a tough and reliable mail server, but (most people said that) its very hard too install

hmm now a day, there is postfix, people claim thats.. as easy as installing sendmail and as tough as qmail

i my self using qmail as webserver
