best email server

I am about to start a project that hopefully many of you have already completed. I want to build a server for about 10 people to access a broadband connection and an internal and external email solution. This server will then be enhanced to provide a central backup point for various files that will be created. The end result will be implemented in a commercial environment and I will have to support it.
My main question is what server software do i need? As a starter for ten. then build my server and get PC's logging into it.
Is there a book a site dedicated to this type of project?

The main reason for trying to implement this is cost. 10 people all running bill gates merchandise means serious cash for a small company.

I am very comfortable with a PC but I am a complete newbie with Linux. I understand that i am attempting an ambitious project but time is not the issue here. Learning and getting it right is.

One other thing, although I understand Linux is command line I did not mourn the passing of the DOS prompt GUI if possible, please?

It could be fun!

bleeding excellent project.. you'll learn a lot from it..

i've used Communigate before and it worked like a charm.. dont know wat else is available..

btw, linux isnt just command line.. you can get XWindows which comes with almost all distributions..
