In summary, the person is looking to set up a mail server on their Redhat 9.0 system. They have already set up a web server and FTP server. They are wondering how to set up a mail server to send and receive emails from their domain, using a POP3 client like Outlook. They do not have cpanel and are looking for instructions on how to set it up without it. They have the mail server packages installed and are asking about which MTA to use. The expert suggests using Postfix and provides links to documentation and a guide for setting it up. They also recommend downloading the latest version from the Postfix website before beginning.
