There are tons of possibilities :-)
You can start by deciding the involved applications and the layout/scheme
for your new e-mail system.
Applications (in no concrete order):
- SMTP server: postfix, exim, qmail, sendmail...
- POP3/IMAP server: cyrus, dovecot, courier-imap...
- Anti-malware/anti-spam (optional but highly recommended): spamassassin,
- Webmail (optional): squirrelmail, horde, roundcube...
Do not care for windows users. As long as they use (almost)standard e-
mail based clients (like windows mail, outlook 2010, thunderbird, etc...)
there should be not problem at all.
