If you really want to take all the stress out of running your own email
server, I can highly recommend Google Hosted Applications. They
handle all the email server stuff and provide, in addition to the GMail
web interface, POP3 and IMAP access (all three of which work *very*
well with both Debian and Ubuntu). Life is just too short to deal with
running your own mail server (and all the spam avoidance that incurs).
