Using Linux as JUST an email server
I would like to have the Linux server just run the email. The website would be elsewhere. I know I can edit the MX entries for the domain and have the email point to a different location, and hopefully it could point to our own server's IP address.
Is it possible to just use Linux for this feature, if say I use something like Scalix for the email software? (http://www.scalix.com/)
Tricky problem, however: we want the same linux server to run our intranet, but not internet site, and do not want outside people to access the intranet.
Is there any special configurations, or plenty of help online to get what we need?
Just making sure before I try it....

All you have to do really is point port 25 from the outside world to your linux machine, and run your mailserver of choice upon it (sendmail is pretty ubiquitous). If you want people inside the lan to use different methods of connecting to read their email, you can use imap server and/or pop3 (both available through the xinetd service) or even web-based mail using something like squirrelmail.
All in all, what you want to do is pretty straightforward.

Configure your mail server [MX- like mail.abc.com] on a live ip,install any MTA u like (Qmail is the best).
