I think you should use CentOS as well. Setting up an email server (and
modifying the associated DNS) is not that hard all by itself. The hard
part is you will need to cope with floods of spam emails some of which
contain viruses. I recommend you virus check all incoming emails and
quarantine and ultimately delete infected mails before they get to the
recipients.
