Rasberry PI Mail server

Hi there,

Is there a Mail server I can load on my rasberry PI?
and which would be the best one?

Can I use the Rasberry PI OS or will I need to install another OS?

Sorry just starting on Rasberry PI to get a more power efficient server running for me..

Thank you for your support..

You can use Debian and install a mail server with that ...  This guide is excellent for getting started: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MailServer 

Failing that, this guide is quite interesting as well: http://www.ducky-pond.com/posts/2012/Jul/installing-citadel-on-rpi/

Oh ok so u mean its inbuilt on the software OS
Zephyr ICTCloud ArchitectCommented:
Well yes ... If you install the Rasbian one, the "Debian" is built-in ... If I understand your question correctly.

Zephyr ICTCloud ArchitectCommented:
Yes, when you've got Raspbian you can follow the Citadel how-to I mentioned earlier.
