I have 1 win2003 server here and I need to install a mail server on it. I do not want to install a large and robust server, we just need something simple, 1-2 domains, 5 users max per domain. We expect very little mail and would the to keep the mail serving process to a minimum.

Anyone have any suggestions for a small and easy to configure mail server?

I use KERIO MAILSERVER 6 from www.kerio.com
It is very simple to use and configure and supports webmail and antivirus/antispam. It has a small footprint and the configuration can be backed up by copying a few text files to another location.

There is a very basic email server built in to Windows 2003. No web interface (for users) but POP3 and SMTP is available. Install it via Add/Remove Windows components.
