Got to agree with User4283 - operating a secure email server can often be harder than people think... and if someone else has already done that work and made it available to you then you might as well take advantage of that. Use the ISP mail service if that's available.

Failing that, you might take a look at hMailServer - not used it myself but I have heard good things about it. But keep in mind that using the ISP mail server will nearly always be a better choice.

Thank you for the hMailServer. I'm playing with it now. Though I wasn't able send emails (might becaouse of my ISP firewall). At least now it does not give the authentication error. – ilhan Dec 19 '10 at 16:34

best is to user your ISP's smtp for sending email.

Try the free Google apps if you need to send less then 500 emails/day.

Otherwise I highly recommend the free Mailenable email server.
