this will require a couple of extra packages (which will work with any backend 
1) an IMAP/POP server.
The two obvious choices here are dovecot and cyrus (there are others)
for a beginner dovecot is probably the right way to go (almost no config 
cyrus is much more complex

2) a webserver
this would certainly be apache (httpd-2...)

3) a webmail program
squirrelmail is the shipped option, also very easy to get up and running
there are others (horde, for example) but I have no experience with these so 
can't advise you at all
