Which brings the issue of "one size fits all": dnsmasq is indeed simpler
than ISC-dhcpd and bind . Much closer to work out of the box for a small
LAN. However it may not work well on a more complex network. (I
personally use it on our LAN).
And again, for the mail server: if you want a simple mail server with
imap and webmail, you can use a much simpler (and relieble) solution
than a multi-station setup with LDAP.
