They want inter-office mail

By outlawmech ·
I want to thank you guys first for the awesome help!! It works!!!!!

Our network is a peer to peer situation. Cable modem, router, hub, pc's and server plugged into hub.

The boss wants Inter-office mail. I can't do that without a mail server correct??
And I'm not sure he wants to put out money to buy one and the software. Any suggestions??

You will need a mail server. There are some free Linux OS and mail servers available. http://en.tldp.org/HOWTO/Mail-User-HOWTO/

Windows 2003 has a built-in POP3 / SMTP server, it should be fine for what you want to do.

Use it with outlook / outlook express.

Tha'st cool. That Ms server has that available I saw it in there. But ( forgive my stupidity) Don't we need a domain name to make it work??
As in whatever.com??
Or can I use pop.( workgroupname.server)??
because its not a domain controler just a storage area really.

Having a SMTP and POP3 services does NOT make a mail server.
For windows you can try Small Business Server (which includes MS Exchange).
For Unix/Linux, try Exim (www.exim.org) or one of the many other mail servers around.
