Note: I'm new to linux admin.  I'm using Ubuntu Server

I need to install a mail server with this capacities:

1.

Host multiple domains or virtual domains on the same server

2.

Users can access thru SMTP/POP3/IMAP (all of them)

3.

Users are able to access thru WebMail

4.

Users are able to set an AutoReply themselves

5.

Able to setup it to use anti-spam softwaresI know this is a lot, and i'll split it into multiple questions for further details if required.

But for the moment, i need an exchange giving me some pointers.

I've read a lot of articles, but i always end up with one of these requirements not fulfilled.

Thanks a lot for your time

There are many examples on configuring/setting up a mail servers.
I'd suggest you use postfix as the underlying mail server.
Depending on all the features that you want, anti-virus, anti-spam, etc.
Postfix, dovecot, mysql (as the backend user/domain manager) spamassasin.

You should setup/add a feature at a time making sure it works before proceeding to the next one.
Postfix with mysql backend.
Etc.

Sorry for the delay.  I've got back to this project, and managed to setup few basic things i needed for this server.   I've read the article that you have posted, and it look fine.  But i'll do as you suggest, test each thing between each steps.

I'll post another question because it's not the subject here.

This question is about Re-Imaging, Backups, and other things that i need to know to recover access to my server.

Feel free to read it and answer it if you know the answer.

Thanks for your help
