I just got my Pi today, and of course I can't even use it because I got the wrong HDMI to DVI converter but that's besides the point and question.
My question is the following:
I have decided to ditch Gmail and to setup my own email server. First I know I will buy a domain name, I then want to use my Pi to send and receive email in place of Gmail.
Do I have to install a web-server first? How should I go about this. What is the best way to go about it? I will be setting up two email addresses for this account and we should both be able to log into our respective emails simultaneously.
I have the Model B pi with a 4GB card with an OS preloaded from Canakit.
There is a similarly related post here but this person is beyond where I already am.
