[pups] Totally off topic question

Hi Everyone,
Sorry for asking this here but you are probably the best people to ask.

I'm in the process of packing up my house to redecorate it and move to 
another.  As a result my 11/83 has been packed up and I won't get to 
play for some time :-(.  However, the question -

I am probably going to get a broadband connection to wherever I end up. 
I will then network all of the various boxes together and connect 
everything (including the PDP) to the Internet.  I intend having one box 
set up as a server for FTP, email and so on and everything else using 
that.  I will probably use a Linux box for this.  Can I get a pop3 
system for it that will talk to sendmail (only because sendmail is the 
only mail system that I have used) or can I get a reasonable pop3 server 
for Linux.

Anybody else has ideas on how I should do this then hints tips etc. 
gratefully received.

In case the above seems stupid the idea is to take all email through a 
server, weed out all incoming rubbish, and route it to various 
individual's (partner, daughter etc.) PCs.
