I don't host externally, but I do run my own mail server.  I've found
postfix to be an extremely capable SMTP server and one that can be
configured without losing sanity.  Exim is equally highly regarded, though
I've never used it personally.   Unless you're already a guru, I'd steer
clear of sendmail.

For IMAP I use courier, and for web mail, SquirrelMail (although that does
involve PHP and all its security baggage).

PS: don't reply to an existing thread in order to start a new one.  For
those of us (the majority on this list I suspect) that use a proper mail
reader (ie not X-Mailer: Microsoft Office Outlook, Build 11.0.5510) it
screws up the threading.  Thanks :)
