Ive recently setup a Clear OS SMTP server for a Home Computer in a persons house.
Later on they asked my why they cant seem to be look at Videos/Pictures or browse the internet >.<.
So I decided I should install a Windows Environment rather then Linux but im not sure if its such a Great idea on the actually SMTP/FTP server side.
So I can Choose between Windows server 2003 or Ms Home Server?Which one is the best OR which one would you recommend?

Hows Windows Servers SMTP capabilities?

i think it would be a good idea since thats an environment they are used to and can work with. if you have a choice then i would pick server 2003 over home server but home server is a new kernel and can also offer some advantages but it does not support smtp out the box as far as i know.
do you mean that they are hosting their own email server?
both will support ftp

You can either be part of the problem or be part of the solution.

Thanks for the reply BoT

Think I will stick to 2003 since they already have a copy.
