I'm going to go out on a limb and recommend a completely different 
approach.  Take a look at the Courier Suite 
(http://www.courier-mta.org).  It's the only (open source) mail server 
for Linux I know of that is completely integrated (SMTP Server, Delivery 
Agent, IMAP and POP3 all in one).  It does not ship with Core or Extras 
and there are no binary packages but it's quite easy to build on any RPM 
distro like FC5.  Getting things like LDAP or MySQL based auth (for all 
components, not just 1 or two) is quite simple and the speed and 
flexibility is excellent.
