The last post: Building your own mail server, part 1

Not just emails

It is true that if you only want a mail server at home then it's not worth it and you are better off with a VPS but is that the only use you'll make of that server?

If you plan to have a home server then use it as a firewall, a media server, a file server, etc... while you use it also as a local relay server which fetches and send emails using your VPS where you are pointing your primary MX record. Like that it makes sense and you get the best of both platforms.
