Question Advice on Mail server


I want to run my mail server at home. One thing that I'm not sure is that whether my 10Mbps/2Mbps Down/Up link is enough for a mail server. I'll be sending out on average 200 emails per hour(P.S It's a community website notifications not spam ). I would appreciate it if you could tell me if my down/up link speed are enough.

The speed is no problem. But if you are on a dynamic IP, you will have to relay your mails as most dynamic IPs are blacklisted. Here's how you do it: http://www.howtoforge.com/postfix_re...her_mailserver

thxs but in IMHO it is better ip it is more reliable.
If you will charge for the service then static ip if for you
if it will be a hobbie then you can try with dynamic ip.
i have a server that have been and still running over 2 years with static ip and i never had to do anything on the server. i did nt have to even touch it.
I just clean the fans once in a while.
