Default Suitable for personal website?

I've currently running an old SuSE distribution with the following for my own domain:

- mail server for local network and domain (postfix + dovecot)
- mailing lists (mailman)
- web server (apache2, PHP5)
- MySQL (v5)
- caching DNS server (dnsmasq)

I want to update the server distribution to Fedora 7 and found the howto here but I'm wondering if ISPConfig is the tool for me. The server is directly connected to the internet (DSL modem in bridge) and an internal network. The howto doesn't really cover this situation and my guess is that the handling of mail/web etc for the domain is handled/configured using ISPConfig.

So, is it possible to get the same functionality (mail server, lists, web, mysql, etc) using Fedora 7 and ISPConfig running on my fixed IP address/domain name?

ISPConfig does not provide the exact same functionality. What ISPConfig provides is a configurtaion frontend for email (poszfix, courier/dovecot), web (apache), database (mysql), DNS (bind) and FTP (proftpd). What ISPConfig does not handle yet is mailinglists and the setup of a caching nameserver is not handled in the perfect setup guides.

Get ISPConfig support and the ISPConfig 3 manual from ispconfig.org.
