I have been told that i can run a mail server with my adsl line. Is this true? How do i do it? does it mean i could receive any size emails without having to pay?

If i set it up it would be used by 4 people in my house.
Thanks

This stuff sounds awesome.

Is it possible with a dynamic IP too?
Are there any free mail servers available for personal use (will be used by a maximum of 4-5 people)?
How would I go about setting it up?

Would be really great if someone could provide a tutorial. :)

dymanic IP, theoretically possible, but not very legistically, at least not easily, unless at a specific time you needed something, you could tell someone to send something to blahblah@1.2.3.4

Free mail servers... Try sourceforge, see if they have anything for a w32 system, havent' looked myself, but people often don't check sourceforge, they think it's all linux stuff, but I have found quite a few good windows programs there, or at least programs that have been ported to w32

setting it... RTFM... no, seriously, there should be some faq's about it, you'll have to open up the appropriate port numbers if you have a firewall, perhaps 25 or 110.

Oh yes, security is important here. One thing, ALLWAYS turn off the relay function. Otherwise you will be used as a spam relay before you know it!

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
