Default mail server software?

Ok, well i have tried a new like ability mail server and all, but i just don't know how to get them to work. What i want s to have my own email server on my pc, as i already have my own http server using apache. I use no-ip.com to redirect my ip to a sucdomain on no-ip.com and use the dns update service, as my ip is dynamic. all this owrks fine.
If any of you could help me out here, tell me how to set up a server on a subdomain, any help would be appreciated. Thanks

you could use any mail server software as long as your clients point to your subdomain name. If you just want to send mail though i think newer Windows has its own smtp engine.

or use: ArGoSoft Mail Server

U-Toast, try this: Mail Enable

It's a great email server, which i had on my server before changing to Linux. Of course, you'll have to be running XP to run it.

It also has a very good online help guide and support forums. I have tried many servers in the past on Windows and Mail Enable was by far the best one.
