But running a mailserver from home simply doesn't work...

My experience was the same as some other commenters - (some) outgoing emails never arrived at the destination.

I suspect that some SMTP servers would silently drop email based on the source IP address (i.e. they knew it was a residential ADSL connection)

It made the whole exercise pointless, and I ended up on gmail.
