You can do that on every Linux if you configured the mailbox format to
be "Maildir" -> every mail is a file on the filesystem
Configuring a mailsystem for internet usage requires some knowledge
about DNS, DKIM signing etc.
I don't recommend you to run such a system (for a company) with your
knowledge base.
