[thelist] Webserver separate from mail server?

Can anybody tell me if it's possible to run a mail server separately 
from the web server?
A friend of mine has a client who is planning to host their own mail 
server (issues with the current host) but they are not planning on 
moving the site to their own web server. Ie just the mail that would be 
separate from the rest of the site.
I have no concrete information on if this is even possible to accomplish.
And I thought that since the domain is pointing to the web server's IP 
that it might be a little more complicated to set up the mail to be 
redirectd to a different IP??
Can someone clarify that (if possible or not?)?

Thanks in advance,
