There is an FAQ.  Granted, it could probably use and update as well as
being setup so that clicking on the question takes you to the answer,
but it's still better than nothing.

It can be found at:

As one who just recently (maybe half a year ago) jumped in and began the
process of learning all of these applications, I agree.  The key is
research, research, research.  Putting together a publicly accessible
email server (ie. not purely for internal use and without an internet
connection) is not a task that is to be taken lightly.  There are so
many good references available to help you along, most notable "The
qmail Handbook" by Dave Sill, that asking for help right from the start
without having done the most basic of research is rightfully vilified.
