I recently got a VPS and is in the process of making it into a web server. I got everything setup but mail. I've been working on this mail server for a bit, but I haven't had much time to work on it. When I do though, I try to use a tutorial. But each one has seem to have caused an issue so I would wipe the server and start over. Recently, I was following this tutorial and it seemed promising, but then when I tried to send mail it would just freeze up and I would have to stop and start apache. My knowledge of linux is very limited, but I'm trying to learn. So far linux has been good, and I really like it, but mail has been the last thing that has stopped me. I'm currently running Ubuntu 10.04 x64.

Is there a tutorial that you would recommend for Ubuntu 10.04?

Exactly that tutorial you failed on. You should really try again and then tell what did not work. "Freeze" is not analyzable. –  mailq Dec 8 '11 at 22:33
    
Asking for tutorials is generally not a good idea, as the tutorials get out of date quickly, and are of little use to future visitors. Instead, if you have a specific question about where you're stuck, feel free to ask another question outlining exactly where you're stuck. –  Mark Henderson Jan 23 '12 at 10:39

For server configuration I can recommend either the Linode or Slicehost tutorials. For emails, you might find what you want here:

Those sites cover plenty of other topics, and are fairly easy to understand, even for a linux novice.
