Question Best distro for email server ?


Hello,

I am wanting to setup an email server with an old p4 system I have laying around. I am going to register a domain and use the email just for my family.

I was wondering if anyone knows the best distro and software to use for this. I am looking for easy setup and maintenance. If anyone could help out it would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

use what you are comfortable with, that's the best choice... your choice. you've got debian and redhat in your profile, either of them will be fine for a start.

I don't think the distro matters as much as the MTA that you are going to use. Postfix is one MTA that people find very comfortable to use.
