    Hi artonweb,

    Do you have a preference between a Windows or Linux based home mail server?

    Before getting started you'll also need to verify that your home ISP doesn't block incoming port 25.

    An alternative solution is to use your registrar for your email hosting.

    Some registrars such as Godaddy will give you some free email accounts and forwards if they are associated with a domain name you pay for through them.
