I am going to set up a mail server in RedHat Linux 7.1. The purpose is to host several domains, provide clients with POP and IMAP mails, let clients access mails through MS Outlook and web-access (if possible). Can any one recommend the best solution to this scenario?
Any help is highly appreciated!!!

For email, you can use the sendmail that comes with Redhat.  And I believe the POP, and IMAP server is also bundled.  In most cases, if you installed you RH as "Server" role, it would have been installed.  Otherwise, you can add the package.

Just a thought, RH 7.1 is a bit old (isn't it).  Latest from RH is 7.3.

cheers.

Hi,

     You can take a look to postfix. It is easier to configure than sendmail. http://www.postfix.org. Of course, there is also some RPM packages of this software.

Hope this can help.

Bye.

so did you decide to go for the server software.

For ease of administration, grab a copy of Webmin (http://www.webmin.com/webmin/).  It should have a module to manage Sendmail, and even Postfix too).

and, andything interesting for the Web Mail solution?

You can configure sendmail for SMTP and postfix to Pop/imap.

Dont forget about Qmail. It is highly secure, configurable and extremely efficient.  I think Yahoo mail runs on Qmail.
