Question Mail/Web/FTP server - POP3 (My first time)

I am setting up a Mail/Web/FTP server. It is my first time with Linux Server Setup, and is best to assume it's my first time with Linux in general.

I am trying to build this server in RedHat 7.2.
How do I setup the eMail functions, specifically POP3 functionality so people can use their Netscape, Yahoo Mail, and Outlook to check their email on this machine?
Do I have to download a separate daemon for POP3, or is it included with Redhat 7.2? If so, where can I find it?

What are some recommendations for books? Is there anything like "So, you want to build a Linux Web Server?" or "Linux Web Servers from Scratch for Idiotic Dummies" or something. Websites are cool too, but harder to read in a plane or on the bus.

The server is not in a domain and would reside with a fixed IP address mapped to a specific domain.

I think the POP3/IMAP server that comes with redhat is cyrus, . You can use the packages from the CD or get the updated versions.

I would suggest that you go through the cyrus documentation in the distribution for carefully. And also it would help to go through the hows on ISP, EMAIL, etc. at

You can also setup a web reader like
