Personally I'd not use Ubuntu directly for this, but rather a specialized distribution, like Zentyal, which is based on Ubuntu Server, but comes with easy to setup  and use configuration wizards for the server modules you need. It is really easy to setup and doesn't really need any additional help:

Another distro that has easy to setup and use tools is turnkey linux, but I haven't tried that yet so can't give any first hand advice with it:

A quick search ubuntu postfix will return many details.
Your question is missing details.
How many domains will the server handle, how many mailboxes/email addresses on each domain do you plan on handling. How are you planing on managing those? Etc.
IMHO, postfix is simper to configure manage compared to sendmail.

rindiCommented:
Yes, with Zentyal you have all types of server modules you can use and there is also a Web Server (although I haven't used one myself).

Why don't you just install it and try it out? It's free.

You can if you want subscribe for payed support from the Zentyal site if you need it.

Sure. There are no limits to the number of users or how you use the system. With the subscription you just get some additional services, like support.

rindiCommented:
That I don't know. But you probably first need to buy a domain name and you'll also need to get at least 1 static IP from your ISP,
