I need to setup a webmail server for my company, I have a dual proc Linux RedHat 8.0 server setup and ready to go,
I need to know what package I should use for mail, and a quick explanation of how to set it up. I only have about 20 users that will need to send and recieve mail via this server.I downloaded qmail, postfix, and openwebmail packages but I'm not sure where to start.

Thanks fella's

It comes with Redhat, needs to be run with imap.

How will you be sending your mail? will this server be exposed or intermittantly connected (i.e dialup)
will it be registered, dns,mx etc or will you be relaying to your isp's mail server?

more info please :-)

This server will be live all the time via T1 connection with a registered IP, nat'd through my firewall to a 10. IP. I need to be able to send and recieve e-mail (for about 20 users). Let me know if you need anything else.
