Just about any distro should help, but here are a few suggestions and links.

CentOS Linux http://www.centos.org/
cAos Linux http://caosity.org/
SuSE Linux
etc...

These are some howto links:

http://www.linuxhomenetworking.com/l...n/sendmail.htm
http://www.yolinux.com/TUTORIALS/Lin...alMailMTA.html
http://www.faqs.org/docs/Linux-HOWTO...ser-HOWTO.html

This list can go on and on, but I hope they offer some help.



Peace V
