The last post: Building your own mail server, part 2

A really simple alternative...

is to use Blueonyx (

Based on Centos 6 (or 7 soon), it is a derivative of BlueQuartz which ran on the Cobalt Raq range of 1U servers (subsequently owned by Sun)

Suitable for multiple virtual hosts (from its heritage in hosted solutions!)...

Boot the CD, follow the prompts and you're done: all administration can be done via a web interface... If you want you can add a webmail client (eg Roundcube) and mail filtering (spamassassin, clamav etc). Being Centos you can install other things if you like or build them yourself but there is a "shop" if you want to buy some of the packages...

The real bonus is that it is being actively developed, and has a very responsive support group.
