Hi Varun,

I think you can go with qmail mail server which is really very easy to
setup and supports good user interface options. You can try qmailrocks on
google.

Also if you want to go for a more advanced mail server, then go for foss
zimbra mail server. In this, only take care that you need a perfect dns
setup and hostname entry in your ns server prior to installing zimbra free
mail server. You can get good amount of documentation on google for
installing zimbra mail server. Let us know if it works for you.

Hope this helps.
