sjau for right these are not high traffic sites or email. Our websites are mainly used for our direct suppliers. Email traffic if I were to estimate is 100 emails a day and 30% is probably spam. At this point in time I am thinking of just sticking to building the email server and leaving webserver on Windows. We just finished a 1 yr project building a asp.net system that handles customers, suppliers, freight dealers that we deal with. It was all built around SQL Server and I think our web developer would have a stroke If I changed anything as far as that goes.
sjau since I am new to Linux would you recommend a gui interface distro with a gui manager like Webmin or something similar to configure everything. My linux command line skills are null
Thanks again for taking the time to help me.
