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, 
clamav, amavisd-new...

- 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.
