The really, really simple way is to install SME server which you
can download from http://www.contribs.org.  It is a simple install
with a web-based administration interface - just add users - pop,
imap, and webmail will work out of the box.

The down side is that it has not been updated in a long time and
since it is heavily customized it is difficult to make additional
changes yourself.
