Interested in hosting my own mail server on Windows Server 2008 R2

To increase my technical knowledge of fundamentals, I am interested in hosting my own mail server.  I will be the only user, with a total of (5) email addresses.  I own my Domain name and am currently using Go Daddy to host sites for family and my email, and wish to migrate these services.  I have a Windows Server 2008 R2 Workstation running Enterprise Edition with good hardware.

I have administrated Exchange for years on the job, and would prefer MS Exchange, but cannot justify the cost.  My wish list includes remote administration, webmail access and POP.  Built in Spam filter would be a plus but not required.

My apologies if I've not posted very important information.  Any suggestions are welcome.  Thanks in advance.

Hi,

Try to enroll in one of Microsoft Early Adapter (TAP) plans for exchange of Windows Server SBS products. You will get the software for free.
