+1 for K D Dent's book.  I had a working mail setup (fetchmail - postfix - 
dovecot) from scratch in less time than I thought, having no previous 
experience at all with mail systems.  Still have more to add on yet.

"Essential System Admin" by Aeleen Frisch gives a good overview, explanation 
of the stages or steps of mail systems, giving suggestions to appropriate 
software without confining itself to details of  any one in particular.  I 
found O'Reilly's e-book format very convenient to obtain.  Delivery of books 
can take a while.
