    Can you ask a more specific question?

    Perfect Debian Sarge Setup (for ISP)
    http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_setup_debian_sarge

    This is a detailed description about the steps to be taken to setup a Debian based server (Debian Sarge alias Debian 3.1) that offers all services needed by ISPs and hosters (web server (SSL-capable), mail server (with SMTP-AUTH and TLS!), DNS server, FTP server, MySQL server, POP3/POP3s/IMAP/IMAPs, Quota, Firewall, etc.).

    In the end you should have a system that works reliably and is ready for the free webhosting control panel ISPConfig (i.e., ISPConfig runs on it out of the box).
    Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier And MySQL (+ SMTP-AUTH, Quota, SpamAssassin, ClamAV)
    http://www.howtoforge.com/virtual_po..._quota_courier

    The advantage of such a "virtual" setup (virtual users and domains in a MySQL database) is that it is far more performant than a setup that is based on "real" system users. With this virtual setup your mail server can handle thousands of domains and users. Besides, it is easier to administrate because you only have to deal with the MySQL database when you add new users/domains or edit existing ones.
    the combnination of those two HOW-To's should allow you to setup a server that users can have web hosting space on , ftp Access to their directory, email with enforcable quotas, that support virtual domains so it can accept mail for more than a single domain..

    is that the sort of thing you were looking for ? you can use all or part, leave out the web hosting section if you prefer.. that's the great thing about Linux

    I use Sendmail. It took a small amount of effort to configure, but was relatively straightforward. I run multiple domains and multiple users through mine. See www.sendmail.org, configuring: http://www.sendmail.org/m4/readme.html, relaying (or control of): http://www.sendmail.org/tips/relaying.html, and anti-spam: http://www.sendmail.org/antispam.html
