Well, it depends on your needs (wishes) and the amount of mail to handle
on local mail server. I like the power of Cyrus-IMAPd (available through
Fedora Extras). It is a bit more complicated to configure. Fedora Core
ships dovecot, which is an improvement to the old uw-imapd. dovecot is
small and a good choice for smaller or mid-range mail storage/access
servers. If you choose to store in Maildir format even a bit larger
mailboxes can be quick.
