I have run courier MTA, sqwebmail etc. on my home server for years. I
use a gentoo linux distribution so it is easy to install the mail server.
Now, I need to run the this mail server on an Amazon ec2 server.
Is there a package I can use to install the Courer MTA on the Amazon ec2
I have checked the yum directory on the Amazon ec2 server but the mail
server is not part of the yum directory.

According to the Amazon EC2 FAQ, Amazon offers a choice of stock Linux
distros. They don't have a custom Linux distribution. If there are no
Courier packages in Gentoo, then Amazon won't have them.
Amazon does offer Debian as one of its choices, and Debian does have a
Courier port. So that's one option.
Another option is to switch to Fedora, and build Courier packages from the
tarball. It's fairly easy to build RPMs from my tarballs.
