First of all, thanks.

As for searching - I did, but didn't find specifically what I was
looking for. I'm looking to set up a system identical to the one we're
using right now. I checked up my distribution's Help pages, and found
this:

https://help.ubuntu.com/7.04/server/C/mailman.html

I think that does it. The installation was a bit tricky, but it worked out.

However, there is still a problem. I don't have a domain name. I do,
however, have a static IP address. In such a situation, will a MTA
like exim4 or sendmail be able to send and receive mail?

I apologise if my questions sound amateurish, but this is my first
attempt at installing and configuring mail services.
