As the page says you should check at least if its installed by doing those procedures:

   1.  Start system-config-services
   2. Make sure that httpd and mysqld are started and selected to start on boot, then save the service configuration.
   3. Verify that your web server is working correctly by opening a browser and pointing it at http://localhost/ (which always points to the web server on your computer). You should see the test page for apache, the web server application.

For an e-mail server its a bit more challenging... I would recommand you an other Unix distrib like Debian, FreeBSD or CentOS...
