Linux Mail Server

This document covers how I have set up my Linux box to work as a Mail Server. The details will be specific to Arch Linux, but it will be be general enough for any *nix distribution if you have a knowledge of installing software packages, finding the location of configuration files, and starting/stoping services..

My goals in creating this mail system are to have all of my mail, from various email accounts, stored locally on my machine so I can access it anytime via SSH, the web, or imap. I wanted all of my mail delivered to my local user account and I wanted the spam to be sucked out and launched into space.
