I hope this article helps you to set up your mail server, but like most things on Linux this is not the only approach to this particular problem. I've showed you only what I have done.
Another important thing to remember is that although the setup shown in this article makes the quick setup of a mail server easier, you should complement this with good security measures to keep undesirable visitors away from your network.
