Look at ClearOS.  I haven't used it beyond installing in a test VM,
but it looks like it would be a suitable SME replacement with a more
up to date code base.   And it should be usable as an email server too
whether on the same host or not.  Or if you understand the configs
well enough, just roll your own from a CentOS 6.x.
