    Need mail server suggestions


    I want to set up my own mail server. Can someone suggest some n00b friendly apps that I should try. It will be for home/small business usage, probably less than 15 account during it's whole lifespan.


    Any thoughts.
    Thanks

    sendmail is a bit more difficult to configure, but its more scalable with is database conducts. But if you only need 15 or so, try postfix or qmail, qmail is probably the easiest to configure, but lacks some of the niftyer options sendmail does. a app like webmin should make this process simpler for you, if not the gentoo wiki has an excelnt HOWTO covering postfix with imap-courier and ssl.
