Hi all, Just new here and just got a webpage up & running. But i can't find a decent way to run a mailserver. Is there a good tutorial?

If you're looking to setup a dedicated server for this then might I suggest you don't do that, and instead just pay Google $5 a month to use their apps service. It's easier and more secure. http://google.com/a
In fact, i have several domains, used by different users. Most of them are small ngo's. All i've to do is to forward all the info@... to the users email.

Google allows only 20 domains, so i'm looking for a mailsserver to forward mail
Ditto, you would want a reliable smtp proxy to send out email or most of your mail you send will go to spam. There are currently multiple ways.

Google Business Apps : http://www.google.com/intl/en/enterprise/apps/business/ -- used to be free now they charge $5 dollars/ user.

Microsoft Live: http://www.domains.live.com -- this is still free. setup an account

Setting up the email server is a PITA on Linux... I followed this tutorial (up to the Horde installation - didn't need that), and it worked for me: http://www.exratione.com/2012/05/a-mailserver-on-ubuntu-1204-postfix-dovecot-mysql/
