    Postfix is easy. I hope this guide HowTos/postfix - CentOS Wiki will help you.

    If I were you I'd take a look to Zimbra.. It's relatively easy to setup and mantain (for small environments), but you need to have basic knowledge of how E-Mail and DNS work to perform a setup, and it's based on Postfix.
    It's not 'officially' released for CentOS, but RedHat packages work flawlessly.

    You can find a basic install guide on[remove]how-to-install-zimbra-on-centos-5-x-linux-server/ , while the instructions for Split-DNS (needed if your server is behind a router or firewall) are on the official zimbra wiki:[REMOVE]wiki/Split_DNS

    As for the migration of your mailboxes, there are many helpful tools.. Basically, it all comes down to whether you have IMAP access to your godaddy server or not..
