There's install instructions here on how to set up a webserver using postfix/courier-imap. Courier provides support for imap/imap-ssl and pop3/pop3-ssl. I use it on some of my servers and am quite happy with it.

Ahm garyura, he asked about a pop3 server. Last time I looked, procmail was no server but just an delivery program.

Back to the question. I too use courier-imap/pop. But this is only for you, when you have maildir mailboxes. AFAIK courier does not handle mailboxes in mbox format.

Cheers,
A.

I would recommend qmail (it will handle smtp, local delivery, pop3). http://cr.yp.to/qmail.html

Qmail has a very nice guide @ http://www.lifewithqmail.org which will walk you through setting up qmail for smtp, and pop3.

Now, if you host multiple domains (or subdomains) I would recommend you check out vpopmail. You can add virtual domains and setup users in a snap. Inter7 also makes a web-based administration program, I haven't messed with that much (yet).
