I like SuSE for that kind of thing because it is up to date and it
also has great "GUI" tools for management which work very well.  Also
you can go down to text file level too if that's what you need.

I feel that a generic solution is usually best.  Find as "pure" a
distro as possible (whichever one doesn't make a world of difference,
but stick with a mainstream one), configure the MTA that it comes with
(Postfix is always there nowadays), slap on Webmin and you're away.
