You have to setup a MX record, that tell's other SMTP server where to direct your mail. For POP3 and such, just add a host record, and that's it.

if you wanna do that you have to chroot one mini system in each home directory. i never do that but for this to work, you must have a complete working filesystem in each
home directory (/home/foo/dev /home/foo/bin /home/foo/usr/bin /home/foo/etc

This is not usually what you want for normal users, i recommend you to just start one ftp server like pureftpd, and enable the chroot option.
