Hi Jean,

I appreciate your response.

I was considering purchasing a Raspberry Pi and setting up my own mail
server on it. Would it be capable of running a personal mail server? I
am on the Linux Kernel mailing list which receives around 300 emails a day.

Will I also need a static IP address in order to connect to the server
from anywhere in the world?
