Setting up a mail server is not a trivial task that can easily be described with some simple commands on a forum post. I would recommend to do a web search with the keywords NAME-OF-YOUR-DISTRO mailserver tutorial

A lot of this stuff can be distro specific if your distro changes where config files are stored and such.

You didn't mention in your post which OS you're using.

Not just the distribution specific but the configuration is also specific to which server do you want implement. Do you want just an SMTP server, or pop or imap or all? Do you want sendmail, postfix, qmail, zimbra or some other package? Every server package will have their own individual configuration changes and distribution specific configurations as well. You need to make decision first.
