That depends on the hardware, how many emails you expect, what kind of web sites you host (static vs. dynamic), etc. I think if you have a server with 8 or more GB of RAM, I'd start with the web- and mail server on the same system. If it later turns out that you need more resources, you can still increase RAM, optimize the setup, or move the mail part to another system.
