You actually don't _need_ imap and pop services to be an SMTP server. You only need those if you want clients to be able to download mail from you. Also, you don't need both imap AND pop. You can choose how you want users to be able to work with their mailboxes.

Most importantly, you'll need an MTA (Mail Transfer Agent). It appears that Fedora is shipping with sendmail (lord only knows why these days ;)) and by default it won't accept mail from machines other than the machine it is running on. There is a section in the Fedora  FAQ ( http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/release-notes/ ) that explains how to activate this. Search this page for Mail Server and you'll be taken to the right section.

HTH.
