    Are you trying to Setup Linux mail server? I prefer Fedora ..Why not Centos ?
    Which mail server you want ? sendmail or postfix ? Sendmail is bit hard to configure than posix.

    Depend if you need only mail or collaborative (your windows users are maybe used to use outlook and exchange server).

    If you use only mail, I'll go for postfix (easier to configure)
    If you need copllaborative work, I'll go to Kolab (good and open source, but outlook integration is not so good).

    If you accept to use comercial but very cheap product, I suggest Zarafa or beter Kerio. They are outlook compliant, collaborative (calendar, contact, ...), have a good web-access and Kerio is also very nice for management tool.
