For pop3, I'd suggest qpopper, if you want to keep mails on the
server, you could look for some imap server, mostly there's one
coming with your distro, whichever you use.
As MTA anything should work, postfix/qmail/sendmail, I prefer the
last, but then any of those will work without problems.
I'd would be a great advantage, if you wouldn't use that utter piece
of crap called M$-OE, even if you are restricted to M$, there are
a bunch of free/good MUA available (eudora/pmail). Try a google
If that didn't made much sense to you, start here:
