Re: How to optimally set up components for SOHO mail system.

	G'day all,
		Given that in Fedora and Linux in general, there are many different
ways to accomplish the same task, I would like to ask people of their
recommendations or experiences in what components to use for a small
mail set-up for home and office and how they link together.  From my
reading so far an IMAP model would be good, but I am still unsure of the
precise flow that mail would take in and out.

	Currently I use what Fedora10 defaults to (sendmail and Evolution) for
no reason other than they are the defaults, am not sure when one stops
and the other starts and have not looked at anything else.  I also use
the Evo Spamassassin plugin and SA with remote filtering enabled which
works well.  We access 10 e-mail accounts all from the same ISP.
Different people will need to read mail from their individual accounts,
with some accounts being read jointly by 2-3 separate users.  Volume of
mail is low, eg. this list is 25-50% of total mail volume.

	I have found much material on the individual components, but not on
mail processing in general and how they fit together, complement,
compete or overlap each other.  Pointers to such process flow would be
appreciated, as well as general opinions on piecing together such a
project.

I have been running Scalix on Centos for a few years now. I am getting ready to bail out of that and am testing out SME (http://wiki.contribs.org/Main_Page). This is very stable and very functional for the SOHO, even SMB arena. I suspect there are several ways to have those 10 mail accounts picked up by the SME mail system and then presented to local users either via IMAP or POP3.
