Receiving Email On Win 2k3 Web

I have Windows 2003 Web edition that I am using to host domains, I have already configured IIS and DNS to accept the http connections, but the one problem I am having is getting it to accept mail. What I want to know is step by step how to setup Win 2003 Web Edition with no extra componants other than what is built into windows (POP3/SMTP) to accept mail sent to it, I.E. say I am hosting xdomain.com, I want to configure the server to accept mail sent to filex@xdomain.com and deliver it to the mailbox hosted locally on the computer.

The second part to this question is: How to configure SMTP to be secure, as in I can setup my mail client to use the SMTP server hosted on my Windows 2003 Web box to send the email, and the SMTP server not be used for a relay for spammers (it require a login to use the SMTP)

Hope my question makes sense, if anyone needs more information about my setup just let me know and I will post it. Thanks!
