Looking for a very basic HOWTO on setting up a mail server

Hey all,

I installed the mail server that came with Redhat Fedora Core 2, but I'm at a loss on where to start when trying to configure it. Could someone point me in the direction of a very basic how to on setting up a LINUX mail server?

Thanks in advance

See the link in my signature below for a fairly newbie-friendly guide to setting up Postfix with Spamassassin. Postfix tends to be a lot easier to deal with than sendmail and with spamassassin attached it is a really nice mail server. Post questions if you get stuck and we will help you get up and running.
