Free web mail

Can anyone give me some insights, books or web sites that teach/explain how to create a web-mail site using Linux, and other technologies? Thanks!

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I don't know of any books or websites on the subject, but I could tell you the basic way to do it. You setup sendmail to send messages(Sendmail does not need smtp sever,and can also recive I belive) then you have a web site with apache for login and sending email. You use cgi script to send recive ctc. All this would be a big job to setup, and you will need a pretty good computer to hanlde all this.

Sorry, I want to have some practical instructions. I also know to use sendmail and apache (email and web system). But, what else? How to dynamically set up a new email account? And so on..?
