If you'd like to run a mail server on FreeBSD you can find some popular
mail servers in the 'mail' catagory of the FreeBSD ports system. Please
read the handbook for more information on how to install a port, and
also how to change your system mail software - although the port will
likely to that for you.
Some popular mail servers to look at include qmail, postfix and exim and
also the standard mail server that FreeBSD installs by default called
sendmail. Many people find sendmail difficult to use and configure so
replacing it is a popular choice.
My suggestion would be to consider what you want to do, and then spend a
lot (!) of time reading on the web to understand your options and how
you want to proceed.
PS - please also read the document at
http://www.lemis.com/questions.html which describes how to ask a good
question on this mailing list.
