I've had my own domain name for just under a year now, and today I've been tidying it up to run a public facing blog.
I was wondering if it's actually worth running my own mail server. I've looked it up and it's not a 5 minute job I can just test out, so I'm looking for some opinions. Realistically I'd have it set up so I can access (send and recieve) from my gmail account.
Am I going to have my email rejected by all the major providers (outlook/gmail) becuase I'm on a non-standard domain?
I like the idea of having multiple accounts for different uses (firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com).
Is it worth the effort of setting it up, and will it survive me having a dynamic dns (ddclient updates namecheap, the ip change isn't very regular (once a month maybe))

We installed the FreeBSD operating system on each of the workstations. FreeBSD is an open source derivative of Unix that is renowned for its speed, customizability and rock-solid stability. We also installed a variety of open source software packages from a repository that we created on the Mini. The second Mini serves as a backup and content mirror, which we aim to sync once per year with new material and as needed.
For both teachers it was their very first exposure to FreeBSD. They enjoyed the control and customizability of the installation process, as well as the wide availability of open source software packages in the repository (more than 20,000).
