For my home stuff and a couple of production servers I use Sendmail
+imap-uw (imap, pop)+squirrelmail+popassd+clamav_milter+spamassasin. I
is very simple and fast to setup, plus easy to trouble shoot. If the MX
is pointing at the address already it might take me about 20 minutes to
make it start accepting and sending mail. One of these days I want to
release a small tutorial on how to do this.
