    You have to register the desired domain name.
    You have to make the necessary DNS entries identifying your mail server
    You need an ISP that allows you to run a mail server on your internet connection
    You need to decide what mail server software application you want to use.
    You should have a backup smtp server for your domain
    You need to make sure the necessary tcp ports for mail are open through any firewalls

    There's more too.

    Thumbs up Email Archiving

    I think you need proper access of configure server with proper email archiving that may help you to store, retrieve and filtering emails with right way.
