I'm not sure that helps any. Most people installing Linux don't do it
because they want to run an Internet MTA. In most cases, the most they
are likely to do is learn how to configure whatever default MTA their
distribution provides to forward outbound mail to some relay, whether in
their company/campus, or somewhere else, and teach their mail client to
talk to an incoming mail service already provisioned for them. If they
want something more sophisticated, they will either learn how to configure
what they already had, or use whatever they are already familiar with from
elsewhere, whatever platform they are using.
