( Anyway, CentOS was a server base distributions and I really wonder why it was not include all those setup which is common for someone who want to setup the email server these days )

I agree.  There is a working solution "right out of the box" with CentOS 
with either Postfix or Sendmail.  I honestly don't understand why a 
couple of folks keep mentioning DJB's software tools when people ask 
about mail systems for CentOS.  There is a reason those tools are not 
included with the distro.  Ijez, if you want to email me offline, I'll 
try to help get you up and running.
