thinking of moving to hosting websites internally

Hallo all. I am wanting to move away from a reseller account and would like to host my customers websites and email from my servers. I know that Windows IIS will allow me to host multiple sites with i ip address, but how would mail work? would there just be a list of MX records that resolve to the same IP of my exchange? Any thoughts?

Thoughts = DONT DO IT.

There are multiple reasons why I would not do this.

1) Bandwidth = What kind of upload speeds do you have?  I would think for even a low traffic site you would need t1 or better.

2) Redundancy = I dont know if you have a data center in your basement or what, but can you provide redundancy in every aspect of the operation?  Data, OS, connectivity, etc...

3) Economics = Reseller accounts and even dedicated servers have gotten so cheap that it is not economic to maintain your own servers, unless they are used for an intranet.

For Exchange you need hosted exchange HMC (hosted Messaging and Collaboration).
