That probably is the best idea for storing the mail. What is a good
IMAP server, I've seen references to Courier on the postfix site
On the sending end I'll have to set-up postfix (or something) and have
it relay, can postfix relay to different servers based on whose mail
Also what are people's opinions on qmail vs. postfix. I used postfix in
the last incarnation of this laptop and liked it alright once I got the
hang of it, but I was wondering how easy to setup qmail is comparably

Nope you pretty much hit it right on. For some reason I thought there
was something more complicated to it then that. Thanks.
