We have a number of computers in our household. I'd like to use one computer to perform the following functions:
perform the role of a an Email server
perform the role as a media center - family viewing monitor will be attached to it.
perform the role as a web server.
My immediate goal is to set up the email server. Can anyone provide me steps on how to do so? I really believe that there are other people with similar interests. Once I am able to setup a server, I plan on purchasing an atom type computer (mini itx form factor) to perform these services. These tiny but powerful computers can use as little as 19 watts. This appeals to me as I would like to have this system on 24/7.
Should I be concerned about using LMDE. Should I use Debian Stable? Thoughts?
